Mime

It came to me far too easily it seems 
I missed all the signs I needed to know
Played along with whatever she told, me
I’m guilty, I fully admit I was naïve 
I gave everything that I was- to her 
But I was just a boy feeling loved  
At least as I understood what it was
She was life, she was beauty and more 
Her lips wore the taste of my future   
She promised me forever and a day 
But as of late, she been gone far too long
And those days just became months
But that was- years ago, last, I counted
Before all this bruising and confusion  
Back when I felt warmth and young
Now, I’m just a shadow of my former self   
Over there on the brighter side of love
I knew everything would be alright 
Here in dark silence, I don’t know… anymore

  1. An Awesome piece! Powerful and moving insights that cut too close to home for me – been there done that and am probably still foolish enough to do it again, if given a chance (sad to admit)!! Really loved the lines in your opening:
    “I missed all the signs I needed to know
    Played along with whatever she told, me
    I’m guilty, I fully admit I was naïve”

    But for me, I saw the all the signs and wasn’t naive – I guess it was a “Thelma and Louise” moment where I decided to enjoy the flight to the inevitable end. I guess that’s what getting addicted to someone is all about, isn’t it??
    Great post!
