I’ve tried so many times
And shed a river of tears,
Hoping,
Praying,
You’d see the light,
That special spark I see in you.
You gave me just enough.
Cunning words,
Tiny actions,
All to keep me in the game.
Each time,
You snatched them back with a vengeance.
I look at you differently now,
Your hazel eyes,
Black with a cold emptiness,
A dark bitter void,
And finally see the icy truth…
