This is the Last Time


I lost my mind today with
just the thought of losing you.


The heart wants what the heart wants
even if it should know better.


I was under the illusion that you cared,
but it was all a beautiful lie.


At some point, enough is enough.
This is the last time.


I won't dwell on yesterday
because the past can't be changed.


All I can do is focus on tomorrow
and stop the vicous cycle now.


Life is a journey paved with lessons
and I should have learned this long ago.


I have to look out for myself;
my heart can't take any more of this.


Better things are on the horizon
if I just walk towards the light.
