The Walk to the End

This is a poem I wrote based on something that happened to me a few weeks ago....

There's nothing left to give
There's nothing left to take
Cold hands linked in others
There are no mistakes

I know nothing's died
I know nothing's new
Your heart's still for me
I know that's true

It haunts you like a ghost
It is so unkind
The aches and the pain
Pelting you like acid rain

You want to hold me as much I as I want to hold you
You say you wish that this ending weren't true
Your salty tears begin to mix with my own
We both hate how much your darkness has grown

It overcomes you and you don't know why
It hurts me so that I can't help but cry
I miss your smiles, I miss your eyes
Before they were clouded over with an unknown disguise

We don't know the answer
We don't know the way
We just keep on talking
With not much to say

I can't let you go
You can't let go me
I've loved you so much
To the furthest degree

You tell me you'll be back
I know someday, you will
When your mask is gone again
And you can find your thrill

The final goodbye is too hard to say
I wish with all my heart it was still like yesterday
You wrap your arms around me and kiss me one last time
For one last time, I can pretend you're mine

There's nothing left to give
There's nothing left to take
Cold hands linked in others
There were no mistakes

The End
