Warning Signs

Warning signs are flashing
Not to be heeded
Apologies mean nothing
When trust fades away
As vapors unseen

Fighting is useless now
No feelings of love remain
In a heart broken again
By bold lies and deceit
Truth is a blinding light

Trying to forget the past
Only brings back pain
Even when moving on
Seems to be the only path
Meant to be taken

Tired of proving self-worth
Over and over and over
Doubt slowly creeps in
Slithering, seeking, winding
Enfolding, gripping, pulsing

That long-buried fork
Appears new in the road
Glass shattered dreams
As revelation sets firmly
In a worn-torn soul.
