    twowolves80 Darkness Incarnate; don't even bother

    There comes a time
    when we put away the things
    of foolishness and vain pursuits,

    but to our everlasting sorrow,
    it's usually after the fact,
    and we are left broken and empty.

    How I wish I could simply hear
    your soft voice once more,
    telling me I'm yours forever.

    I should have never hung up,
    such a terrible fate I have drawn
    and now I can't go on

    without your face before my eyes
    while inside my soul slowly dies,
    and then one night I'll get the nerve

    to end things completely at last--
    the pain is too much to bear,
    and there is no hope left in me.

    It will be your face, and your voice
    that guides me into that endless sleep,
    because I know I'm going to love you

    for a long, long time...

  2. I love how you manage to pour so much deep emotion into your poetry. I definitely feel the feelings you're describing. Attachments to people - and the love we have for them - can be a great thing, but they can also destroy us when the attachment is no longer reciprocal. If it makes you feel any better, just know that there is still hope of finding a new other person to bring us the hope and love that is needed. In any event, I really love your writing and your poetic description of tough emotions.
