I lay in bed
i lay in pain
i lay in mourning

something is dying inside,
a flame distinguished,
a wildfire put out

i shouldn’t have gotten close to you
i shouldn’t have let down my guard
i should have known.
what’s the point in loving someone if they make you feel like this?

i gave you everything
and now i’m left here alone
with only memories
and another reason for tears.

ahh life vs love

that ageless conundrum
it has been said
better to love and lost than to never have loved at all... some kind of nonsense like that the writer never alluded to the pain of heartache....

I say better to be in an insane asylum
at least there you know everyone else is as crazy as you are

anyway, what I'm trying to say is that you'll start to get past this,
maybe you'll never completely forget, but this too shall pass
I try to remember the things in the past that I enjoyed... I start to smile and I'm onto the next new adventure or misadventure one never know how things can go....
sometimes we don't learn from our mistakes
here's is hoping that you learn to enjoy more than you endure

"One of the best results of life, is the torment of love"

Dylan Eliot
