Now You See Me, Now You Don't.

Now you see me, now you don’t;
you sure played that game well.
It seems I couldn’t decipher your lies
The truth? I couldn’t tell.
For years you’ve been gone, but still I hold close
The memory of your face.
I can picture your smile, it’s the same as mine -
A trait I’ve tried hard to erase.
A spiraling black hole is all you left behind,
Along with two broken-hearted fools.
A girl with no spine and a sad little smile
Trying to play love around the rules.
I try to reach out for you every night
But there’s never anything there
No matter how far I extend my reach
I’m grabbing at cold, empty air.
