Like the poison of a snake
That didn't bite
Seeping its toxins into the core
The whispers of lies
Deforming our greatest moments
Changing them to hate and disgust
The dread of wanting to say another thing
With each brick you build that wall up
To isolate from any
The shattering of trust
You pull even further
The less and less there is of desire
The silence becomes your friend
You long for an overdue apology
That will have no meaning
Feeling like time was just a waste
Like all there is was discontent
Never good enough to even get a compliment
The only effective thing was hate
But that would be just another lie
Never knowing what to do
You want to say goodbye
But also hello my friend
They are both so easy
And yet seem so hard
Craving that twist
That just for once
Things could stay
With just one mindful thought
Could be the beginning of something new
