Tears fall like rain down the well worn path tonight.
Memories of yesterday flood in black, shielding my sight.
You steal the joy in today by the lies of promised change.
Yet, suddenly my heart is not broken this time, all feels strange.
The pain I expected is lessened by a greater presence of hope.
I am no longer bound by your emotional game and rope.
My hands are open as I let go of all you have done and forgive.
I release your memories, your deceit and your hate, never again to relive.
