broken heart love sad

he said that he loved me

she said that she loved me


he said no one could ever steal our love

she said that there would never be another


the way he used to wrap his arms around me, swaying back and forth

until she fell asleep in my arms


he said that he only needed me to survive

she said she would die without me


he lied to me

she betrayed me


the way I used to stare into his eyes, dreaming of the  bliss

that is now gone and all that remains is her distorted reflection


-N.D. Johnson
