Tough Love

Memories, silent and proud,
They are all that remain.
Lies hide behind a woven shroud,
A moment passed, with no trust to gain.

A cherry sunset fading into tomorrow,
Today leaving while once again arriving.
You promised to stay, only left me your sorrow,
A feeling of confusion, within me I feel it thriving.

Ashes of a captured moment,
If only my memories of you I could rid.
The feeling pours over me heavy like cement,
This taste on my tongue, forever and putrid.

If only for you I could hate,
It would all become clear.
My love however, unable to change your fate.
To you my back I turn, as your end draws near.
