It’s darker here, not black, but darker.
There is still sun here
It’s just buried within dark ominous clouds
I’m not afraid of the dark though
I’ve been in the dark before
But this is different.
Because this time no one is there to help me out of it.
There’s no one reaching for my hand to pull me free
No one to help me up if I should fall.
I’m alone here – truly alone.
In some ways I expected it.
To be betrayed by the ones I trusted
Because it’s happened so many times in the past.
But it hurts more this time.
The knife went deeper.
Do you remember what you said to me?
“You walk this path alone
but your friends are still there with you.
If you turn around we won’t be gone”
But when I turned around…
You were gone.
All of you…are gone.
You lied to me. You lied.
To be fair…I lied as well.
Because I told you that I trusted you
But how could I?
When all my life all I’ve heard is lies?
Lies and excuses.
Why should you be any different?
You’re a liar. Just like the rest of them.
But it’s okay…
So am I.
