Alone again.

They left

With pain

They were killed.

No love

Nothing there.

Nothing to hold

Nothing left to feel.

Only hope

The emptiness

Only I knew.

It was lost.

Coming back.

At straws

To find a way out.

It was all

All I had

Not anymore

Still lost.

For a light

For my lost soul.

How to keep sane

I found the key

Ever so slightly.

This would finish

Finish the search.

Edging despair

Weeks passed

No friendships made

So slow

Like an hourglass

It came

Friends

New friends

We met

The cycle broken

Trust

The trust

It returned

The feeling

Numb

No longer numb

Emotion returned

I was back

Away

Away now

Away from darkness

In the light.

Never

Never again

Shall I return

I'm here now.

Can't

You can't

Can't take me back

I'm never going back.

Eyes

My eyes

They look ahead now

Never looking back.
