All I can hear is my heart beat pounding
The silence that envelops me is deafening
Once again I am standing in that spot all alone
My throat is raw from calling out your name
I am tired; I have decided to give it all up
I am hollow, I am hurting, I am sad, I am hopeless
I hug myself to stave off the cold slowly taking hold
I am motionless, emotionless, breathless…
All I need is that final release when I become lifeless.
You stand away from me in the darkness
But I can still see your smile, those lips and their smugness
Will we ever get to stand together in the sun
To enjoy this human experience as it really should be done….
