Empty words and broken promises
that is all that is left of the
friendship you swore would never end.
This empty feeling deep within
inside of my chest if the heart
that you have once again crushed
because I believed in you.
Chills of sorrow is what washes
over me every time I think of
you any more, because you
have once again let me down
just like I knew you always would.
Fighting back the tears and choking
down the breaths that I struggle to
hide from everyone around me.
Destroyed by yet another of your
betrayals and broken by words
i thought you were saying
because you actually meant them.
Silly me for believing,
silly me for trusting,
that was stupid on my part.
I really should have known better
I really should have seen this
before now....should have recognized
that you were a liar all along.
Buried deep within my soul
is all of the empty promises
that you made to me that
you swore you would never
break.... silly me for believing
that what you said was true.
Standing on the edge of the
cliff looking down...and
contemplating just jumping
off into the emptiness that
has now taken over my soul.
Debating whether it is worth
the pain to keep moving forward
with so many empty words
and broken promises spewing
from your lips and burning my ears.
Its now or never, I can't be
saved. Have given up and
jumped to late for me, but
perhaps one day you
will see that what was
should have been held
onto instead of thrown away
like trash....too bed it will be
to late by then to fix the
soul that has shattered.
