You lie somewhere at the back of my mind
With traces of memories here and there
Your face
I don’t think i’ll forget in a long while
Light-skinned with the most beautiful pair of brown eyes
I always loved staring at them especially during those heated arguments
You were mine and i was yours
A bond so strong
It was impenetrable
We shared laughs and cries
We had each other
From dusk to dawn
We were young
We were in love
Even distance couldn’t hold us down
Over the years we waxed stronger
We became part of each other
We shared goals and dreams
We looked out for each other
We wanted the best for each other
I wanted the best for you
I wanted to be proud of you
I wanted to look in your eyes and just smile
Because i believed in you
I had your back
But no,
You had to ruin everything
You turned your back on me
You crushed me
And left my heart in pieces
You trampled on my feelings
And turned them to ashes
And now
You deserve everything that’s coming to you
Because all we had
Is dead and gone!
