The Room

as I sit here in this quiet room,

with all these memories of you.

I slowly collide amongst my own thoughts.

truth is, it was all a dream,

everything is not what it seems.


as I sit here in this quiet room,

you're off howling at the moon.

I crumble in my own despair.

how could I be such a fool?

to fall into the arms of someone so cruel.


as I sit here in this quiet room,

my mind & soul bloom.

colors bursting at the seams.

I find myself lost beneath the waves,

for it is you I no longer crave.

The author's comments:

This poem was inspired by a past lover I lost. During that time I became very depressed to the point I wouldn't leave my room. Yes, heartbreak is one of the most painful things a person can go through; but it was in that time of hardship I found my true self.
