They'll tell you that you're selfish when you finally let them go They'll guilt you and they'll shame you for not caring When you take control of all the things that you already know And let go of all the pain that you've been bearing
They will tremble in the shockwave that you leave them in your wake As you put the days you wasted far behind you They will tread above the water in a panic of self-hate As they realize that there's nobody to run to
They didn't want you, but they did, when they thought you'd walk away But reality had never crossed their mind That maybe you are stronger than who you were yesterday So you had to leave some clues for them to find
They'll scream at you and say that you are wrong to block them out But the peace is almost deafening to hear As they realize all the love that now they'll have to live without They will try and stuff you full of all their fear
So now smile. Walk away until you can't hear anything What they say is now no longer yours to hold So go off, enjoy the light that only happiness can bring And let all the things that you deserve unfold
someday we will meet again, but all this time in separation, without you i no longer recognize the person that i am. it hurts so much to realize, i got so used to seeing life from your perspective. but even though you're gone and all that's left is pain, i know someday we'll meet again.
your image flickers in the dark, you are so distant, yet so close. i raise my hand to stroke your hair, i try to hold this lifeless ghost, but the illusion fades away and leaves my loneliness exposed. your image flickers in the dark, you are so distant, yet so close.
I sat in a pool of tears And felt an emptiness inside, They said it would come in waves And I was crashing against the tides. For losing those you love There is no greater suffering, But what is grief If not love, persevering.
in the dry yellow rolling hills of wine county where crickets and cicada sing sweat and memories guided new creation a place for her spirit to rest all gathered on homemade pews strong stones and brilliant quartz the focal point through cracked voices, stories erupted they filled tin buckets with their grief listened to the sound hit the bottom so softly found a whisper of rhythm linked arms and danced with sorrow in a place of peaceful remembrance those moments her nymph spirit was holding all there she was the sky full of stars on that dark night the electric energy in the air with hands clasp tight a united silence for the celebration of her life and a painful goodbye
A haggard angel Stands behind my back. Is it me or you? For three decades She had graced me With words of love And fits of anger. I helped create her And yet hurt her . And suddenly, she turns Away from me, Still loving me, I think. But all she wants, She tells me bitterly, Is to be alone. She leaves and I wonder If she will ever return. I stand on a garish train, Thunderstruck, unmoving, As I watch her storm away. Suddenly, I feel what she does— The pain and sadness. I created her long ago And know why she is livid. And now she returns the hurt, Leaving me as the empty one, My insides vacuum up sorrow. Am I now the angel, Fallen and haggard?
I can't remember what inspired this--probably a film or novel about lost love and irony.
