her silent stare so full of words
waiting to be shed like rain
on the lies that seem so real
on the truth that seems so feigned.

startled emotions leave her hollow
her soul drowns in its depth
her voice seems distant
as she tries to live through her death.

mistaken faith shatter like empty vases
leaving dead roses at her feet
she has no place to escape
the walls around her burn with deceit.

love trickles away beyond life
into a sunset never to rise
feeding the worms that erode her trust
muffling her unworthy cries.

she falls on her knees without her pride
his shadow sweeps over her face that wept
running away from the screaming present
her last memory of his red footsteps..
