I opened a door
inside my head
to see how my
brain was fed.
I opened a window
to my soul
to see if my heart
had a role.
I looked at the stars
in the night
just to see if they
were shining bright.
I looked at the ships
upon the ocean
just to see if they
were in motion.
I took your heart
and left it broken .
To lie on the ground
like a used token.
I took your love
and used it to play.
To lie with a stranger
from far away.
You made me suffer
for my sin.
You made me realise
I could not win.
You made me remember
and not forget.
To make me live
a life of regret.
