You were once the man upon the horse
Riding through the middle of my life
Reaching out the lasso
Saving me from my death.
I thought love was forever
A marriage vow implanted
Unknown to my pure thoughts
That another could turn your head.
I see now many months later
You were burnt beyond belief
The taste of sour wine embedded
The look of hurt within your eyes.
Now you wonder what I am doing
Who my thoughts are of at night
You ask if there’s a place for me
Could you make amends.
Pain that runneth deep
Trust that has been broken
Layers broke and rusty bricks
No words can heal the hurt..
