Sitting Here

I'm a little late today, but cut me some slack--it's Monday! :-)  I've got a new one for you.  This one is titled "Sitting Here".

Sitting Here

This is not but a game to you
Juggling beating hearts
Like a jester at court
We are all little toys to you
Discarded playthings
Left on a shelf to rot
I am nothing if not destroyed by you
A fleeting thought
Long forgotten among chaos and ruin
And yet here I sit--
Knowing--but refusing to accept
That what you are and what you seem
Are two very different concepts
Still--I believe
In love eternal--
Not yours--as it has proven so

And still--I sit here
Content to smile with happy grace
And pretend the pain can't be read on my face
Knowing the end has come and cannot erase
The lie I bought and must now replace

Except your face--
It makes me smile


  1. This is as incredible as The Unseen! Love it!
