Left Behind

May 17, 2011
We talk tonight
words so profound.

The morning comes,
and not a sound.

He left me here,
all on my own.

No words left now,
or sounds to moan.

All that is left,
is a broken heart.

He took my soul,
as he did part.

No last goodbye,
or lasting kiss.

He left behind
himself to miss.

I lay in wait,
of his return.

Stare at the door,
my eyes a-burn.

Gone forever,
but never leaving.

He fooled my heart,
into believing.

Words in my mind,
that he once said.

Heartfelt I thought,
but forged instead.

Each night I lay,
praying for sleep.

And hoping that,
my soul he'll keep.

Yet ev'ry morning,
I arise.

To realize,
his hateful lies.

Days and months and years
pass by.

And still
my lonely heart is shy.

Will never know
what I did wrong.

For him to be,
away so long.

What evil sin,
had I comitted.

For my love,
to be omitted.

I lay in wait,
and stand in fear.

I pray to God,
that Death is near.

And there he is,
upon my bed.

As my heart beats,
inside my head.

I turn away,
towards the door.

His cloak flutters,
on the floor.

I wait with patience,
for him to follow.

I wait unfeeling,
my chest is hollow.

My hand he takes,
and it goes cold.

And into him,
me he molds.

I feel my soul,
slipping away.

I cannot keep,
Death at bay.

Losing life,
and losing feeling.

My heart is pounding,
head is reeling.

Soon all will go,
away from me.

And peace at last,
will come to be.

I welcome Death,
invite him in.

To erase,
all that has been.

My body turns,
into sand.

Death takes me back,
to his homeland.

Nothing is left,
of the past.

All is lost,
at long last.
