I remember you told me
all would be well,
trust you and wait
you would be well worth it...

I'm thinking here
you lied,
more words from another who never meant to stay
never really cared,
not really ...

I believed in the dream
of you and me,
what a joke!
I'm laughing at my own frail stupidity

thinking there was substance to what I thought I heard
the truth is
it's up to me,
it has always been
this much I know

swimming in delusion
grasping for clues
to something
anything ...

I know better than this
always have,
deep in my core
yet, I ventured near
listened with careful ears
just maybe
you had the truth
and maybe, just maybe
I wasn't alone
as I have always been

good for the long shot
steady and true,
you took that and ran with the rest of them
the best of them,
and while I sit here alone
something I'm used to
something I've grown accustomed to

I knew from the beginning
and should have strayed,
on the sideline of caution
my best feature
something I'm known for
my reality

helping the others to achieve their dreams
realize their objectives,
forget about me
I don't really matter
never have...

Wish I could have said that to his face 3 years ago. Ah well.
