Lights flicker out
and flames grow dim
lost in the space
between you and him.
Never did you think,
this too shall end
but now love is over,
he’s not even your friend.
Life carries on
with or without you,
so how shall it be
will you be happy or blue?
Nights will never be
as long as they are now
and the days will be torture,
a smile turned to a frown.
Miss him or hate him
but the answer is clear,
all of your problems
exist only in your mirror.
