I’d caught that look of sadness
In the corner of your eye
How pained you must have felt
Yet determined not to cry
It’s over, not to be undone.
Moved on with your life these days
Far too painful looking back
The days roll into months
Your masquerade will sometimes crack
The peace you own, has been hard won.
Yet even still you hear the voice
That in your head caused untold bliss
But that was then so long ago
You’re left as one with nought but this
Alone one’s life, is far less fun.
