a page

if i have a heart of stone

your name is on a page

the one that has a corner turned down

written with guilt and shame

the page is blue and tattered

like the soul you left behind

in search of who you thought you were

before i crossed your mind

a fleeting bit of happiness

across your space of time

crumbled up and thrown away

to the footnotes of your life

you can take the credit

you shoved me in the cold

now i have a heart of stone

one without a soul

but i'm stepping out into the sun

for all the world to see

things can end so badly but

it's not the end of me

a night will come when i will rise

and like the distant moon

i'll shake off the bad dream that

once was known as you ...

turn the page.
