All the same

Because you said you
Always look at me with
Sunset eyes and
Summer lust
Of new love found
And I believed you
In fairytale trust and
Dreamlike truth
Because I needed you
To be that one
At that time
(And she sees
The same stubborn
Etched different patterns
On your face –
The same stubborn)
Because you said you would
And now say you can’t
And you, not first,
This place familiar
(And she cries,
The same tears
Streaked different patterns
On her soul –
The same tears)
And it is
All the same
