Silent tears

My eyelids are heavy, but so is my heart. His words were empty and meaningless. Years of friendship based on lies. Thoughts of his heart, promises, hours of conversations, trust…which is now fractured and in the process of becoming permanently damaged. What I thought him to be, and the reality of his true character. I was yet another fragment in his life to be used when required. The status that he has held will slowly deteriorate. He is no different from the rest of them. Selfish, and a seeker of his own needs. My perception has changed, and yet again I will be on my own. Steering my ship towards a safer shore. Bereft of that once intense friendship, now lost to the winds at sea…
