Done And Dusted 


Drained from emotions

Onto a mission of self destruction

Not to share...not to believe

Even to enjoy another moment


After many hours of waiting

Not you...not me

Dared to take the chance


Days became dark...nights darker

Useless hours of hope...wanting

Seeing you fade away

To pursue romance...not you...not me

Endless hours of dreaming

Done and dusted

Those things happen beautiful brown eyes. It happens when both are not willing to chance of being hurt. Don't be a stranger write some more.
