"The Journey of Loneliness"

I am petrified of this loneliness surrounding me
It is worse than drowning
You are killing me
I am killing you

I am torturing you with love
Never letting you forget it
It must feel like I hate you
Giving you love that I see as beautiful
While you closed this book shut

Dear love of my life
Why can’t you leave my mind?

I did it all for you
Now I am
A shadow of a man
I used to be before
You didn’t kill me
But you killed my convictions
All in the name of love
Now the only thing I have left
Is desperation

I am petrified of this loneliness surrounding me
It is worse than drowning
You are killing me
I am killing you

You were like a piece of art
Creating the most beautiful canvases
Only for my eyes to see
Now I am staring into a glaring abyss
Our shattered faith falling right in the middle of it

And I want to jump after it into the unknown
But I am too weak to even make one step
Too tired to reignite you inside of me over and over again

After the longest silence of my heart
I hear a shattering scream of the hope we once had
Hope that smashed at the bottom of the abyss
It gave it last sound that was still so sadly powerful

I am petrified of this loneliness surrounding me
It is worse than drowning
You are killing me
I am killing you

Now because of you
I am surrounded by a beautiful loneliness
Who is my companion
In a journey to find love again

The End
