Out in the cold
That’s how I felt
The night that you told me
There was somebody else.

Like a knife through my chest
I was in shock
Nothing I did
Could make the pain stop.

After you said it
I couldn’t hear
I couldn’t respond
Nothing was clear.

My face was numb
My hands started shaking
I couldn’t breathe
My heart was breaking.

Like crumbs in the forest
You left a trail 
I chose to ignore it
I lost out …. I failed.

You left …. you were gone
Now I’m all alone
I spend my time …. waiting
For you to  come home.
