A shadow of the past
A faint glimmer of who I once was
The mirror shows me a different person
A new face, a new smile
Shallow, empty, fake.
Every choice I made.
Built the person I am,
And destroyed the person I was.
Promises broken, blank words.
Water under the bridge they call it.
Only to cause despair and ruin inside the castle.
Fear and doubt,
Expectations ground into the dirt.
Disappointment at every turn.
All the change,
Fruitless, useless, needless
No masks left.
The costumes all torn
The dialogues all ancient history
The lights smashed
The stage shattered
Leaving me wrecked
Unappreciated, unloved, deserted.
