Lost Love

Blue and purple galaxy in night sky

Memories Don’t Lie

Losing love out of your life

The pain spills away

But cannot successfully leave your body

It builds up harming your psyche

Your heart cries in pain

Your mind no longer remains tamed

Your emotions take over

You stare at the sky lost over

The lost love has departed your life

The sky is glowing

But your strife is growing

How much longer till you recover

Will the pain last or will you move forward

Being stuck is no easy task

Especially when functional like on good grass

You try your best to invest

Your future relies on your self-interest . . .

A Ten Year Battle

Lonely, sad man sitting in front of white projector screen

The Battle Known as Loneliness

The pain harbors in the center of your chest

The empty corners of your room remain isolated

People come and go

Yet you remain in the same place

Isolated with pain and arrested in shame

But is it your fault you constantly ask yourself

Or is it destiny observing the cards that were dealt to you?

Whatever the reason may be

Your loneliness continues to eat you alive

The weekends are worse, the weekdays you manage by

How does one exit this trap called loneliness?

Do you just accept like a prisoner and hope for the best

Counting down the days until you can hold someone abreast . . .
