An Empty Promise

I hate the way,
the way you make me feel,
i hate the way i love you,
the love that i feel

i showed you my soul,
you showed me your lies,
i bore my heart to you,
you drove through that knife

the wound you caused,
may never truly heal,
the pain im feeling,
will definitely be eternal

i wish i knew why,
why you had to lie,
you told me that you loved me,
you told me that you would die

without me you said you'd have nothing,
without you i said i would die,
we are not together anymore,
yet not truly alive

im so down and alone,
even in a crowd,
i wish i had you here,
i wish i could be truly alive

like i was back then,
just three weeks ago,
before all this happened,
before we lost our way

That last verse and its time scale reminds me of youth, and why we wrinklies shouldn't laugh...!
