Bitter Cold


You came in on the wind and chased the shadows from my life
You stole my breath and woke my tired eyes
And I was happy for a while
But now I'm trapped back in my mind

Because you left me standing all alone
Out here in this silent, bitter cold

Now, I notice everything around me
All the happiness I see
Is just never meant for me

You danced into my crossroads
Found me screaming at the sky
You put me on the right road
Showed me how to live this life

But you left me standing on my own
Out here in this silent, bitter cold

Now, I'm seeing everybody
How their hearts are always smiling
From a love that never has to hide
And I'm screaming at myself for letting all these thoughts into my mind
And I'm screaming once again into the darkest of night skies
Because I know that you are just a remnant of my past
And that things not meant to be will never last

I'll still love you all my life
And you'll always be on my mind
But you left me standing here alone
You left me out here on my own
In the silence of this bitter cold

Rejection is what hurts more

Rejection is what hurts more than the love. The love is only what you have from the beginning, and what it was in the beginning is all anyone ever has left even when it ends because of death...but people are conditioned to think that the length of a relationship somehow means more love. Its a lie people believe easily, because mommies and daddies teach their children its true. I see you becoming a real man maybe not just a half ass one like so many others... only painful they say, in the beginning. Stay safe tonite.


...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. "

Whoever said

"It is better to have loved and lost" obviously never had to live with the memories.
Thank you, nightlight. You're words are always uplifting. The perfect start to a new year :)
