“If he’s treating you, like I treated you”…

~

You don’t look older…
You just look so sad…

Like the troubles you carry…
Are the worst you’ve had…

That sparkle in your eyes…
Is duller than I recall…

The glint of diamonds…
Is hardly there at all…

And I know that it’s been…
Such a very long time…

Since we were together…
And everything was fine…

In the haze of that summer…
In the midst of the madness…

You’ve clearly moved on…
Yet inherited a sadness…

That drapes over your face…
Like a thin white veil…

And sits on your shoulders…
That appear gaunt and frail…

While the smile you paint…
On your soft, pretty face…

Can’t cover up your pain…
Or even begin to chase…

Those dark demons away…
That now reside in your head…

Who have stolen your identity…
Causing tears to be shed…

And there’s nothing I can say…
There’s nothing much I can do…

To light up this darkness…
To take the burden from you…

As the distance has grown…
The dynamics have changed…

You’ve acquired a new life…
I’m cast adrift and estranged…

On the outside, looking in…
Wishing we could restart…

And turn back the clock…
To before I lost your heart…
