It saddens me to tears
That there you were here over the years
You dodged and were dogged
You ended up being a muse
Deliberately you used
Definitely not a mused
You pinned your hopes
Then couldn’t cope
With the added attraction
Then it was distraction
Of a life so bright
Shining with delight
Your heart shattered
I know it mattered!
I’ve pondered, wondered
Totally considered
The shattering of hearts
That has torn us apart
I cannot be your
Joke and a lark
There in the dark
The pouring rain
Lashing down on the window pane
That has put so much strain
On hearts with so much pain
Where we both had nothing to gain
