Farewell to Palindromes

By In Extremis

A bloody broken needle for your cries,
A bit of taken life for dark demise,
Searching for the truth lost in your lies
Claims of remorse, remain your pitied prize

So why is this so hard for me to do?
Are all of these regrets lived through...

Something so shallow, and cold,
An ironic beauty to behold
In my love that tried for you,

And should there even be a question why,
We have to live before we die?

Cause if it was all the same to you
I bet you'd say you always knew,
That it's never too soon to say goodbye,

So don't hurt me now,
By promising you'll change,
This façade can't last
Another burdened, shameful day,

Don't lose hope now,
By swearing that you'll wait,
This pain can't last
Until you finally get your way,

Please, don't let this go,
Because I fear there comes a time,
Where each and every mistake you make
Will be etched upon a garden stone
That's bears your name

    a plaintive cry against the injustice of addiction! it's never fair, it's never right, it's never easy... all you can do is to try to love them through it! unfortunately, sometimes, all our love is not as strong as the drug... Be Well! ~worm~

    "It's never too soon to say goodbye", and in some cases it isn't. This reads to me as someone who loves an addict, and is coming to the realization that this person just can't keep putting themselves through the Hell. You did well with this. Rebs:).
