in the beginning, there was a time
when we were the talk of the town
a twisted love affair
but, in the end, you let me down
our days filled with conversation
i wore our love like a crown
our nights filled with tenderness
and still, you let me down.
there were months when you
were the only person i wanted to be around
my knight in a plaid shirt and slippers
and yet, you let me down
the cracks began to show
the crown fell to the ground
and you didn’t want to be there to help pick up the pieces,
that’s how you let me down.
and now i look back and i’m angry
that i turned my life upside down
all in the name of what i thought was “love”
and then you went and let me down
was i not worth fixing?
was i worth leaving to drown?
in the blackened waters of my mind?
was it easier to let me down?
i ask because you did it so easily
maybe you were on a huge comedown
of the idea of me
not the reality of me
and that’s how you let me down
what was once our palace
soon became a ghost town
but i will rise up from these ashes
and i won’t let myself down.
