lost love

In the light ,on the bright side.

fall behind from the upside

when you're down ,something changes.

something wicked as if straining to hold on.

from the  last bit of memories.

I keep falling ,im still fading.

even after all I've done.

all the moments,all the smiles.

all the cries ,screams ,and lies.

even when we said we wouldn't.

said we wouldn't  fall apart. 

now it's over ,I don't know. 

all that's said ,all that's done.

never mind ,you're still gone.

I don't care ,let's move on.

all the bleeding ,all the burning.

such a sour bitter taste.

it's just memories ,memories worth fading.

all is said ,all is done.

still my scars are not yet gone.

all my burns remain unhealing.

and I just walk ,moving on. 

moving forward ,won't look back.

won't give up.

in the darkness ,in the light.


don't you worry ,ill move on.

You have put words to how I feel with an artistic quirk that is rare. I love this.
