A dying mind

By nightshade

Everything in life is a choice
By choosing right or wrong you give it a voice
You say it wasn’t an option you can’t control what you do
always hurting those closest to you
There were unhallowed secrets you wished to preserve
She loved you more than you could ever deserve
Making another person start over again
You turned from your lover to her best friend
Watching behind you cringing at every sound
How could you presume that you wouldn’t be found
You’ve finally shut the last door
Blood spilt upon the floor
You think of all you must leave behind
As Darkness envelopes the dying mind

**I actually wrote this one starting from the last vers to the first**

    This reads like a great lesson in love, one we can all learn from when we gradually fall out of love with someone. Very good work.

    I agree with pessum, impressive for a poem to sound right forward or backwards.
