via Daily Prompt: Retrospective


A retrospective look
Brings back the memories
Still trying to digest
The things you did to me.

The blatant lies you told
My dreams have all been shattered
Nothing I could say
Ever really mattered.

You had your own life planned
I was there in passing
None of it was real
It had no chance of lasting.

You were using me
To satisfy a craving
You cast my love aside
No feelings meant for saving.

You walked out the door
Into another’s trusting arms
They didn’t stand a chance
Another victim of your charm.
