Sweet Nothings

Only if. . . he wonders if she would stay. . .
he remembers, as if it was yesterday

tears in her eyes made her vision blurry
life became a desert, trapped in a sandstorm, unable to see

all she ever asked – the three letter question
“why” – no matter how hard, he is beyond redemption

guilt is the ugly brother of sin
it eats his heart from within

hope and fear huddle against each other
as if they were made for one another

touched by unbearable pain
lukewarm tears leave behind a stain

towards her heart, running down her cheek
a glowing visage, left behind so bleak

promises, it took months to put out the blaze
“how can I smile, if I ever see that face

you don’t understand.”

there is more to this story
neither about romance nor glory

be beyond words
she starts at the end, ‘cause it hurts

where do you go from here
you let go, out of fear

to lose everything
sweet nothings.
