I will go down in flames

I cry mercy but your grip only tightens. I plea forgiveness but alas my words fall on deaf ears. I should have known that you would destroy me. Razor blades adorn your floor with a name written on every last one, but I turned a blind eye to see only your beauty. You kept me distracted with your love letters sealed with a kiss. My misplaced devotion was thrown back in my face, my undying love that burned brighter than our sun has been slowly fading since the night I watched you drive off in his car. We found each other in the dark where we became the others light. I would have set my body ablaze just to guide your way, and you, you would have left me alone to fend for myself. This is a give and take relationship except I think you were playing one for me and two for you because I feel like I was left shorthanded. Yet after all this I feel that a thank you is in order, these are the things that made me the man I am today. I will stand before you humbled in your glory. I thought I knew what was best as I was planning the rest of our lives, but you were plotting and awaiting the day of our demise. You and I are just carbon copies of something great that we could not live up to, but we tried with such valiant effort. Where some would say that is all that counts, we both know we failed. Walk with your head up and your eyes showing a hint of shame and I will do the same. This is epic, a legend in the making and no one knows how it ends because that time has not come. Can we truly out last time or are we just fooling ourselves into believing illusions can be tangible.
