There was a time that I’d lost you
Lost you in time and space
It was a time that you erased
Erased, eradicated me from your life
You captured this heart then tore it apart
My heart felt so battered and bruised
And all you ever wanted was to be my muse
I sure as hell was not amused
How did I not see the being used?
How did I lose myself with you?
How much did I lose?
One hell of a lot
So here I am in the lost and found
There is no sound
Just an empty, empty silence
The wind howling
I’m trying not to scowl
Picture perfect face
With not a trace
Yet there is a trace
Right here, right here
So very, very near
My eyes so sore with crying
Inside feels like I am dying
The log fire is burning away here
But not bringing any cheer
The sun outside shining so clear
Yet within me it is so, so dull
The light and the life
That was so evidently here
Has gone, gone
And here I sit alone
Tempting it might be
Tempting it could be
To go outside
There are too many memories
Out there!
Where we both used to care
You made me believe
That we were so, so true
Through and through
So how can it be so wrong?
Wrong, wrong
To feel so blue
Through and through
I fell for you like a stone
Now I feel like a cold, cold stone
The whole world seems so cold
There is no warmth out there
And here also
Every room empty
Filled with emptiness
Your memories, your ghost
Still exists
I’m so lost and yet to be found
Given time and space
It will happen!
All that is needed, required
Is to find myself
And get off the shelf
Get off the floor
Out of this solitary existence
But not just yet
This bird will fly
As time passes by
From this subsistence
