The other woman

I saw you going away
holding her hands.
It hurt to see her go with you
fingers entwined in yours.
Would you have understood?
I stood there watching,
hearing the sound of something breaking
Who was she -
the other woman...

I'm left alone this side
Can't you see the tears
you're taking my light away with you
I'm left standing in hell
Would that have mattered?
I saw myself in the mirror
looking at the lifeless body
I realized
You took me along with you
the remnant here is the corpse.

I'm the other woman....
