Haunting grace


my love for you is a haunting grace

I see pieces of you in every face

Desgraced I've traced my search is in vane

Crippled I'm rippled and surrounded by pain

Confounded I'm hounded by a ghost with no presence

Reminiscing a love that has lost all it's essence

Still breathing is a world already gone 

Yet I look for you upon every dawn

No more holding you close a hand in your hair

Or whispered I love you's that fill the air

My voice won't work your eyes say goodbye

And that's how I learned that angles cry

Even my pen know's not what to say

Forever I sever myself from this day

You walked away , you walked away

        I just joined poetic side a few days ago but I've been reading as many pieces as possible. I found this one. Beautifully tragic. Love it.
