Like a Thief
08 Dec, 2015 01:11 AM
Desperation, it took me away like a thief
And you were left, with this broken belief
That nothing was wrong; that I wouldn't lie,
But you never knew of the many nights I'd cry.
Like a thief, death quietly crept in
And buried my broken dream, deeply within.
Little did you know, I was falling apart,
But no one could see, inside my breaking heart.
And so I was taken, suddenly, one day.
A memory left behind, of a darkening yesterday.
I've had no motivation in life, to make amends,
And little did they know, my family and friends.
No purpose, faith or strength to carry on living,
I finally gave up, and let myself stop breathing.
And I cannot take the pain away with me,
So I'll leave it in this world, for everyone to see.
