the pain of the realization that you have lost the one thing that you had longed for all your life and that you can never get it.

My heart is heavy!

with unshed tears and unspoken words

while a quiet pain

stirs darkly in my soul.

Only crumbling ruins remain behind

of once-cherished hopes and dreams…


There is only chaos!

Everywhere, inside me…

Nothing remains behind;

all is destroyed, shattered, broken –

hearts, desires, and dreams!


Once again

that awful pain blooms;

only more intense this time…

Once again

that deep, dark hole is wrenched open

inside my chest;

only more brutally this time…


Only one realization sighs

this terrible, tragic reality –

with each passing moment,

that my life has been changed inevitably!


All is now lost;

and it shall forever be unrequited,

the will to live, dream, and breathe –

which was once so strong;

is now extinguished… forever!
