I saw her and I knew,
right then and there,
That what they say is true,
life isn’t fair.
She once was bright and beautiful
and so full of life.
But she was a fool
and lived to be his wife.
She lost herself
behind the curtain of him
and when he left,
it was like she forgot how to swim.
He threw her off of his ship
and left her stranded in the sea
with only a prayer that the tides don’t rip
and no idea of what her future may be.
Once he was gone,
she was too.
The platform she stood on
had fallen through.
She slowly faded
under the lights of depression.
Now she’s jaded
and holds and unfamiliar expression.
When my eyes fell upon her,
I thought that they were lying
or that my vision was blurred.
But it was clear, she had been dying.
He killed her, he let her drown.
All alone, not knowing where to turn.
The first time I had ever seen her frown
was that day which caused me to learn
what terrible things love can do
when you give your all to someone
who will return nothing to you.
