You can have it all
One minute
In seconds
It's gone
You ask yourself

Where did it go wrong?

Love, happiness and security
Blown out
Like an atomic bomb
Trust given
To a complete con

A friendship in disguise

With prying eyes
Full of despise
Weaving amongst
All your ties
Scooping your prize

By telling lies

The jigsaw puzzle
Still lies in pieces
The hot iron
Can't smooth out the creases
Your mind restricted by leashes

Broken hearted

A lost soul
The life you have
Is a black hole
Not even a hug can console
Trying to be in control

Where did it go wrong?

A world
