All by yourself

How does it feel; sitting there in your home
to look to the future, and see you're alone.
No-one to care for; no one caring for you
no shoulder to lean on; when you're feeling blue
Who do you turn to in the middle of the night
when a sound outside your window; gives you a fright

How does it feel laying alone in your bed
do thoughts of a past lover; play in your head
remembering a time; when their arms held you tight
and the warmth of their body; kept you cozy all night
How will it feel; growing old all alone
have you hardened your heart; as if it were stone

Alone with no passion, or a sweet tender kiss
all by yourself, is there no one you'll miss
is this what you wanted; is it all that it seemed
with no one in your life; is it all that you dreamed
how will it feel to know; you'll grow old and grey
all by yourself; day after day.

Not quite forgotten; but not worth the time
for anyone to come visit; and see if you're fine
do the tears start to fall; when you see what you've lost
was loving equally back; to high a cost
was it so hard to change, or would it have been so horribely bad
to give the love you were given; to the lover you had.

Are you as happy as you possibly can be...
how does it feel knowing, you threw away me???

Some people have other

Some people have other aspirations as a priority in their lives. It isn't that they aren't romantic, or that they do not value a love romance type relationship, but it is that they do not see it as a 'main' purpose in their life. I wish you the love and peace we all so rightfully deserve. ♥ Blessings. 

...and he asked her, "do you write poetry? Because I feel as if I am the ink that flows from your quill."

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

I love all your work, but

I love all your work, but this one really strikes a chord with me as it's so similar to one I have on here, which I wrote many years ago.

As the eyes are the windows of our soul,

My poetry is the windows of my heart!!!

My eyes..

Fill themselves with our loneliness.

"Not quite forgotten; but not worth the time."

This one line hit me with a weight so heavy my heart forced it's way into my stomach, and chill bumps had formed upon my person.

Forgive my bluntness..
Bonnie is a stupid twat.
If she could not see the sensual man that I see with just words alone than my friend she never deserved you to begin with.

This write was a heart touching poem.

"We are, Each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another." -Luciano De Crescenzo
