By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown


Late at night, the entire world at peace.

Yet I am wide awake with no peace inside, because of you

The music is low, the room dark.

The only light burns from a candle, lit in memory of you

It, like my love for you, will burn forever strong.

My life has gone on to include everyone, but you

Have drifted from my life, your decision,

not mine.

Times are fast, but drag on indefinitely.

The exhaustion, physical and emotional,

only remind me

Of the strength once given by you,

now forever lost.

The infrequent, but everlasting, times of solitude.

The music and me.

The only company is the fire, that burns

In my heart, Where I am allowed

only memories of you

Memories that haunt and remind me

Of what I can no longer have

Your love, made me strong a strength

I carried into all I did.

A love I would have always returned

With open ease yet intense meaning.

And still you think this is how it must be

You and then the fire and me.

This poem is amazing. I sometimes feel the same way. Losing is hard. But losing what you never had and wished for is harder.
