SO ready to fill another’s cup Slipping against the rim until over it spills But what happens when you empty from giving of yourself- with reckless abandon
The stars shined But I couldn’t see their light Beyond the Shadow, that was you
My lips smile, hiding the storm in my eyes So they won’t ask- About the holes in my heart, that threaten to fill me Or the fire in my soul, that threatens to consume me
My dreams, are haunted by figures shaped with regret and pain, that waits for me to fall unconscious
Sometimes I wonder If my Eyes Give away The feelings I hide And the words I don’t say
Sometimes At night I stare At nothing Thinking How this Will make Me stronger Feeling Like I’m Tired Of my strength
I could feel my skin flushing under the harsh rays of sunlight, even through my jeans, but I stood still. Waiting. She said she would come, that she would be here this time.
Almost 3 weeks ago, I received news that has forever changed me and my life.
I never knew That an image Could cause, Physical pain I never thought A memory Would make, Me choke on air I never felt That loosing you Should be, Happening now
Who knew That sorrow Felt like air Being sucked From you chest Until You could not Breathe or speak Or find rest
