What do those eyes see?

I’ve forgiven you, allowed you absolution
But where does that leave me now?
Lost, tired, alone and grieving
For a love that was never really mine to hold

Your boat set sail, you wept whilst you left
But it wasn’t tears for me, I understand
It was my heart was staked into the shore
Left to bleed, to stop beating and shrivel

It was me who you left, whilst you feigned sadness
Feigned love, attraction and salvation
I’m no longer real, no longer myself
Lost, tired, alone and grieving

I wish I’d never given you my help
I should have kept a part of you behind
But who would that do well for?
You? Me? Anyone? No, it would have killed me
