"Remorse and Revenge"

Dried makeup hides misspent tears,
Your face bares the scars of all the years.
I never knew what was hidden in that mind of yours,
As I look into your eyes and unlock the doors.
When push comes to shove you would always sell me out,
Now push this knife into my heart and remove all doubt.

Your eyes tell me that you won't last,
And idle hands won't let go of the past.
I fear that you were never mine, and because of you the sun won't shine.
I find solace in the suffering I now see.
But I want you to know this is not who I want to be.

Revenge clouds my judgement as I look upon your face.
The wrath stored in my hands could end this human race.
Innocence was taken from me at too young an age,
And now you won't be able to stop this war I wage.
Once I was blessed with such a comforting peace.
Now I won't stop until I feel your breath cease.

If I could find the ones that did this to you,
Perhaps I would have one enemy too few.
I would see you rise up from fabled ashes,
But it isn't so, and I'll see that your heart collapses.
I would see you torn from your disguise.
But my hands will bring about my own demise.

The me I knew is lost, the me I knew is lost.
And you never knew the cost!
