Long Gone

If you wake up one morning and find you’re missing someone
don’t look for me,
I have long been gone from your side, your life
you just didn’t notice.
Wrapped up in your own world living in torment
you forgot my hand holding yours,
You sought the darkness when I brought you light,
you craved loneliness even in my company.
You chose not to live with me but without me.
I have gone away to seek the pieces of me that have fallen
along the road when I chose to follow you.
Pieces of me that broke everytime you shroud yourself
with the veil of selfishness and forgetfulness.
The pain was worth it or so I thought
for I wished that I could save you from the darkness in you.
And yet it wasn’t enough was it?
The things I did were for you and only you
yet you dismissed them as if they’re worth nothing.
The plans we built as we whispered into the night
were all for naught since they are now scattered into the wind.
You tortured me with your indifference
your silence, the feigned interest.
How could I go on when you didn’t even notice my despair?
I have fallen hard and the pain is just everywhere,
I lied when I said I was strong because I didn’t want you to see
the fragile stitches that make the most of me.
One cut and the rest will unravel,
flailing, falling, breaking, dying.

Where is this thing called hope that fuels
the heart that is put on hold?
No warmth touches its halls but icy tendrils
of smoke fill its chambers.
The lights that once hold back the shadows
are no longer shining bright.
Just darkness and silence are left
chilling the heart, making it hard, cold as stone.
Everything we’ve done, you’ve undone,
your indifference and feigned interest kills.
All the dreams we’ve built you’ve destroyed,
all it took was your mocking silence that ruined it all.
Reaching out was like touching a brick wall,
unyielding, unbending, towering above me.
There is no room for me of that I am sure,
now that we’re coming undone.
The strings we’ve tied are already unraveling,
faster than it took us to bind one another with them.
The fire we’ve started is already dying down,
you’ve trampled and dispersed it with your feet.
All that’s left are the ashes of our past and my hopes,
burned to the ground, blown by the wind,
gone forever.

Carving Lies

I will carve the lies your lips have uttered
on your pale skin for you to remember them by.
That all the words you’ve spun with those beguiling
have hurt me deep within this fragile flesh of mine.
But I will not be so cruel as to keep the pain to
I will teach you the burning sensation of shame and
I will show you how easily your words can cut to the
I will make you understand how lies can cause
someone to die from within.
And when all of these you’ve learned by heart,
I will let you go and live the scars you’ve left me with.

the feeling of not caring
unheeding of the cries
of the heart that longs
for a love dreamed
for so long.

the feeling of promises
broken by lips you thought
were whispering the words
that their heart is saying.

the feeling of being lost
amidst the hurt and pain
that war within the heart
that seeks nothing but love.

the feeling planted by the
distance you have put between
us and the future we seek
when we’re just beginning.

the feeling of bitterness
that linger on tongue that
tasted the lies that spewed
from a mouth you trusted.

the feeling that you can’t
accept that the one you trusted
has given you a love that
is empty of feelings.

I’ll Find Another


I’ll find another reason to smile
despite the pain that stings my heart.
I’ll find another tomorrow where the sun shines bright,
despite the clouds that lurk above.
I’ll find another hand to hold,
despite the way I miss your hands I’ve held.
I’ll find another lips to seal with a kiss,
despite the way I yearn for yours on my lips.
I’ll find another pair of arms to rest in,
despite the way I longed for your tight embrace.
I’ll find another someone to give my love to,
despite the fact that my heart belongs to no one but you.
