I am hurt, broken beyond recognition.
I don’t understand what’s happening to me.
The pieces crumble, falling down.
We built a castle, nestled on the sand, beside the ocean.
Ashes, ashes fall all around me.
Burning, everything is burning now.
Our life, our lies. Everything.
When the end came, I tried.
I tried to keep hold of everything.
Dousing the flames of the deceit and pain.
I grab my chest, holding my heart close, as I run.
Broken and shattered.
I ran, ran far away hoping you’d chase me.
Looking over my shoulder, I see that you are but a dot on the horizon.
I see you now, content with a life full of lies.
Contentment based on a freedom, a freedom from me.
I don’t understand.
I can’t pretend.
I miss you, and I will always want you.
But you’ve changed, you’ve faded.
You’re more a memory than a real person,
Pictures on the wall, falling like snow.
Memories faded around the edges, missing pieces
Like a puzzle that will never be solved.
Oh, how I miss the times when we,
King and his queen, loved like no one has ever loved.
But now, I lie on the ground broken, shattered.
Dying, barely breathing.
One day, I will wake up from this.
The nightmare will be over,
But now, all I feel is pain, hurt, and anger.
I’m watching our castle burn to the ground,
All the while, shadows collapse the walls.
Secrets shout like fireworks in the night sky.
One day, you’ll look back.
One day, you’ll miss the view, the castle we built,
The walls that we put up around our love.
One day, you’ll realize you never should have set fire to us.
You never should have shot me.
