I Lost

In reverent hope of something dismal

He lays on the floor bleeding from his wounds

Take the knife from his hand

just there to help out where needed.

Standing up from the scene watching everything play out

All over again in my head.

Hiding the knife was easier

Than hiding the pain within my heart.

Concrete has been cleaned of the crime

His body now walking around again

Hoping for a new future

With a different ending.

He never knew I was there

Watching the entire thing play out

Or that I am the reason

She’ll never pay for the crime.

I lost myself that day

In a hope that he wouldn’t exist.
