Poem

The door has shut
Leaving me wondering
If I didn’t try too hard
Believing in something that was never there

Denial
Rejection
I was just trying to show affection
Only to realise that I was only staring at my own reflection

But as the shells fall from my eyes
I suddenly realised that it was only lies…
The thing I longed for most
Left me feeling guttered and absolutely shattered

I guess the time has come for me
To turn pages
In a book which fades
So that I can save some grace
Instead of running in my own maze.
