Broken

…….

Day is night

Night is day

The earth is flat

The sun does not reside in the middle

 

My world is out of sync

Because you and I are broken

 

You were the fleck of gold in my eyes

The sun that started the day

My hard laughter

My very first, my only valentine

Forever

You were mine

 

My hero

I calculated my every step

To bring you joy

I couldn’t bear to cause you pain

I bore the sting of isolation, of social deprivation

To secure your admiration

I found value in your eyes, in your smile, in your arms

I never hungered for the attention of vultures

Because I was your princess and you were my hero

 

But now you hurt me, and you don’t care

You flipped my world on its axis

And you don’t understand it

I knew in my mind that you weren’t perfect,

But in my heart I believed you were

You hurt me to the core,

And yet you remain so sure

That my love and admiration

For you will endure

 

I can’t talk to you, can’t look you in the face

And yet you carry on, your actions a disgrace

I couldn’t bear the thought of disappointment in your glance

Yet you gaze upon my brokenness with nonchalance

 

Where is the man

I use to adore?

Where is the man that carried me on his back?

I don’t recognize you today

And it kills me to feel this way

If I can’t trust you, then who can I trust?

If love does not exist, then there is just lust

So tell me this,

If you no longer care, then who will?

 

Day is night

Night is day

The earth is flat

The sun does not reside in the middle

 

My world is out of sync,

Because you and I are broken.
