By Gray Vision

You say you love me,
But I see through your façade
You wrap your arms around me
With no regard.
For the emotions within me
Are crying out of frustration,
For the one who loved me
Not the currently forsaken.
We used to be happy,
But it’s no more.
This frigid embrace, left me so sore.
Igniting heart aches,
That I want no more.
Taken a back to places,
That we so much adored.
I feel isolated
Like I was pushed aside.
And every time I ask why,
You never comply.
So here I am now
All alone,
Trying to understand
Your heart of stone.
As I stand here
Within your embrace,
Listening to your heart beat
At a steady pace.
Maybe if I listen closely,
I can find out why
Cause there’s a saying,
That the heart never lies.
And when I find out
When I find out why,
Only then can I ever truly
Sever all ties.
For all I ever wanted
Was to know the reason why,
You left me all alone, naked,
In this world of knives.

    Very good write, it made me feel vulnerable, especially "You left me all alone, in this world of knives" I myself have been in this situation, that uncertainty cuts deeper than any dagger, well done. Scholar

    Your works are beautiful also if i'm not mistakened, I've read some, good stuff and thank you =)

  • A former member wrote: This is fantastically profound. I get sick of famous poets being people that only write about scenery...mostly scenery. I'm very passionate about what underlies a human being and it seems you do too. Very beautiful write and way of dealing with your issues and expressing the unique color that lies inside of you.

  • A former member wrote: Thats beautiful... i know exactly how you feel :(
