I got away with stealing

a heart you held so near,

always somehow believing

that we had nothing to fear.

I got away with lying

beside you all these years,

never really trying

always hiding from the mirror.

I got away with murder

when I finally saw the tears,

stating as they stained your face

that I no longer live here.
