The End of You

Red for love and red for me
A box of cast-off memory
Left behind, and no regrets
To keep you up at night
Stories lost to love's collapse
Never meant to last, perhaps
Funny what the heart forgets
When truth is out of sight

Sifting through your inner mind
Finding I respond in kind
Torn between your two facades
The people that you've been
Close the box and paint it red
Honoring the lies you said
Satisfaction slowly nods
And I forget you then

Author's Notes:
Finding an old box of stories and letters.

wow. i love the symbolism of red and the rhyme scheme. this poem has a mysterious story behind it and the motif of truth is hidden but still noticable. my favorite lines are the first 2 lines. great job!
