I think I had you when I lost you

Captive in thoughts of feigned affections

These things cause problems one can’t solve

So easily…alone

Each step forward taking me further from pain

Convinced that our time was a mere stepping stone

These things bring shadows to light

So easy to be…ignorant

Time healed no wounds

Nothing was fair in love and war

These things bring pain

So easy to mistake irreverent gestures for truth

Two hearts deceived

But two minds made honest

These things bring one closer to enlightenment

Never easy to accept truth
