Return To An Empty Shelf

I came back to look at who we used to be,
     and what I found was void of life and love.
I looked at our dreams,
     and everything once there was gone.
I looked at our achievements,
     and they were only broken trophies;
     all the nameplates baring other people’s names.
I looked, and there wasn’t anyone here;
     even you had flown away.
I looked, and our proud past was a sham;
     forgotten memories on a dust-covered shelf.

I should not have come back.
