Abandonment

I knew before now I’d have to let you go,

Say good-bye, heave an anguished sigh,

Yet never imagined picking up the pieces

Of this torn lease on life so rife with pain

And suffering in torment of loneliness,

With sanguine platitudes in false attitude

Of assurance of better days still in store,

Though your eyes tore my heart in two

When at last you proved to be so untrue

To love, loyalty and the dignified royalty

Of your right-born, high-heavenly nature

Now lying like dark blood soaked cloak 

Discarded old and worn on earthen floor
