In Denial

I refuse to face this agony for you
for every choice you've made
has led you to
this moment's misery

You could have had it all
then came your fall
back into the habits born
of other's forms

You cheat
yet not so much on me
as on yourself

and these grand gestures
that the herd thinks right
will crash upon you in this night
of soul's unmaking

Yet still
the choice is yours
and no matter how the waters stir
it seems your word means naught

for even in my dreams
as you fought to keep control
it was just then
that you lost hold
of me
