Heartbreaker…

What if he said that he loved you…
After all’s been said and done…

What if he uttered those three words…
And confessed you were the one…

Admitted it’s never been over…
That he’s still utterly obsessed…

Craving to be with you each moment…
But his feelings have to be repressed…

As no one can know the truth…
So he buries them deep down inside…

And the moment he pushed you away…
The truth is, he simply just lied…

Because you’re the one in his dreams…
It’s your face when he closes his eyes…

He fell on the day that he met you…
Each day since he’s had to disguise…

The connection that exists between you…
Unspoken memories you’ve amassed…

Wrapped up in small talk conversation…
Never talking about what has past…

Those sweet stolen moments of sin…
The lies that became secret memoirs…

That somehow still burn so brightly…
In-between the battle lines and scars…

Thoughts he pretends to have forgotten…
In a form of twisted self-preservation…

Carrying on with his day to day life…
Without thought or any hesitation…

Yet wondering what might have been…
If the midnight stars had aligned…

If the planets had somehow collided…
Allowing hearts to become entwined…

Instead the potent spell was broken…
Leaving moments of bitter regret…

Within a lingering mist of maybes…
But a commitment to never forget…

And what if he said he remembered…
Every second of the whole affair…

Would the gravity of that confession…
Reveal the truth or just simply a dare…

In the midst of his decent…
Demonised by them all…

Eager to see him crumble…
Overjoyed to see him fall…

The man who held everything…
And had life all worked out…

He’d battled all his demons…
Wiped away any shred of doubt…

Built his life the right way…
Never strayed far from the path…

A loving and faithful husband…
Until it came to pass…

That a lethal combination…
Of distraction mixed with drink…

And a pretty green eyed temptress…
Caused a good man to sink…

Into the realms of darkness…
Where temptation lit the way…

And seduced by the excitement…
He was held under its sway…

He felt touched by the lightning…
He surged with a higher power…

And as their lips collided…
The thrill just thrust him higher…

But like the character Icarus…
He eventually flew too high…

And the unforgiving sun…
Burned and blinded his eyes…

The drug that he’d consumed…
Had changed his life forever…

Now owned by the demons…
He’s no longer smug, nor clever…

But descends from a great height…
Kicked as he tumbles down…

Attacked by those around him…
Forced to wear a thorny crown…

The one mistake that defines him…
Remembered only for his error…

That shattered all he’d lived for…
And led to so much terror…
