Nothing But Despair

you said you understood me;

you said once, that you cared.

you said the sky was my destiny. 

and the stars, a crown in my hair.

you told me once, you loved me.

to the world it was declared.

you said together we'd face the world.

and everything in it would be shared.

but the banner of our future hung unfurled.

and i saw nothing though i stared.

you and i were not rulers of a kingdom.

\you and i were not chaired.

for us there was no throne,

no, nothing but despair.
