Abandoned



How could you know me,
yet not know me?
How could you love me
and still show such indifference to my pain?
I need your understanding and compassion, but it's nowhere to be found.
You turned your back and walked away without so much as a glance behind.
I guess you didn't want to see the mess you left.
I deserved a chance to redeem myself, if only for all the love I had given you over the years.
The support, the faith, the belief.
All for nothing because when you were done, it was done.
And here I sit, night after night, in this graveyard...
Mourning.
