Hugging loneliness

Hugging loneliness



It’s not what I said that is keeping me awake;

It's all those words that I just could never say.

I have waited too long to find myself a place

And now time is all out of luck and I am at my grave. 



Here I stand looking backwards;

Empty spaces, empty Tracey’s…lost for words. 

The words I never said are all I regret.

The love I never found; the love that I left…

Behind my eyes there hides a smile,

But it is deep down inside my soul.

All you hear are the lies,

When I truly confide,

But the truth is all I ever said and now I am too old.

Too old to change, too late to make you believe;

If you cannot see, then please leave. 



If by now you do not know,

Then go.

Leave me alone,

With my sorrow. 



I have tried so hard to convince you this is no lie,

But by your side I do not lie.

Through your tears of goodbye,

You cannot see the rivers that I cry. 



The trail you leave already fades,

With each and every painful day

And all those words I never had the chance to say,

Are lost with me…


And I am left alone with my pain.

    • Aa Harvey

      Thank you

      "What happened to perfect?

      What's under the surface, it used to be love...
      Would you call if you heard this? Would you know it was us?
      It wasn't on purpose, but hurts like it was.
      Nobody deserves this...
      What happened to perfect?"

      Good very emotive write, may the pain son go away and joy comes back into your life.

        Thank you.

        "Sometimes when the sun sets I feel alone
        Sometimes I feel at home
        This time, tonight, I need someone
        And it's not the sand in my hair
        It's the thoughts running through my head
        All those things you never said´╗┐."

        • Aa Harvey

          Thank you.

          "You gave me so much room,
          That I can't breathe!
          When all I've got are
          Pictures to view.
          There was nothing before,
          It all started with you,
          For some reason it's supposed
          To be...that way."
