Reality

The past is simple,
The memory is cruel…
Different

As my reflections upon that star-filled night,
Those lights seem to take upon a sharper feel…
Painful

As your lips moved,
And spoke six words of the unutterable…
Torturous

You seemed locked in eternity,
As if my mind didn’t want to register it…
Shocking

Those beautiful lips,
That i had kissed endlessly and with fervour…
Passionate

Now suddenly spelt our downfall,
As we stood upon the bridge…
Timeless

Those six little words, so innocent on their own,
“I think we should break up”…
Shattering

And from then on, a fact takes on new meaning,
A
different,
painful,
torturous,
shocking,
passionate,
timeless,
shattering new reality,

That we’re no longer together,
That our lips may never dance,
That we may never laugh together,
That our warmth is no longer shared,
That you don’t see me,

The way I see you.

As facts are simple,
Reality is cruel,
Different…

Artist's Description

I was bored. I came across a profile that for the username said “the past is simple” the profile title was “the memory was cruel” and the description said “different”.

It went from there and i gave him this as a reply
