Senses

 

Can you hear the dripping
of my tears? Can you see
the sadness on my face?
can you feel the pain that
I’m in now? Can you smell
the scent of my discomfort?
Or are your senses dead?
Do you not know what is
going on, do you not know
what to think. Don’t look at
me, turn your head, just look
away toward all of the happier
people who are here.

Lonelier Now

I’m lonelier now than I’ve ever been before

yet everything is back to normal.

but now I know that I’ll never be with you

and my heart is dying, slowly, slowly, slower than everything

my soul is hiding behind it’s own shadow

and I am lying dead on the street

you were the one that I loved, or so I thought

I’m lying drowned in a pool of tears

don’t leave no one can die from a broken heart,

because i did, my body is still here

my mind is here to but what’s the use

my heart and soul are dead, shot, forgotten

all by loves twisted since of humor. I’m sorry, I’m sorry I’m sorry

I couldn’t live as friends. now I pay the price

but did you have to do me this way, painful and cruel

or could you have let me down easy so I had a chance to come back

I don’t trust anymore. because I trusted you

and trusting you led me to my death

so I live alone, un-trusting, cold and bitter

but you will never know it was all because of you so what good is it, what does it matter it doesn’t anymore,

but you do know that we will never be the same again

and that is all you will know

~Dan

Goodbye My Friend

Hey you,

I’m sitting here, reading your mail. Three sentences into it I had to get up and get a drink first. I could see this was going to be a long read. You sound so happy with the new work. Everything is new and big and shiny. There are so many challenges. But that is what you love. To take a problem, reduce it to its smallest component and then solve them one by one. Total dedication. I think that is one of the reasons I fell in love with you.

I can see that your move to bigger and better things was definitely the right one. Yet I cannot help feeling jealous. Spending all that time at work, making new friends meeting new people. I know it will be just a matter of time before you meet some guy that is equally driven. And things will progress from there.

You are going places that I cannot follow you. Places I don’t WANT to follow. But I can see it makes you happy. This is what you have been working so hard for and I can say with all my heart that you deserve every second of success coming your way.

I feel as if I’m losing you forever, even though I know that’s not true. But one day, when you come back from those places, or when you’ve carved your niche and it’s big enough for two, that day, think back and remember me. I cannot predict the future but I KNOW you will succeed beyond your wildest dreams.

Goodbye my friend, goodbye

 

Window to the Soul

By Amy Friauf

The flame of a candle is blown out
As lovelessness withers a rose away
And as the forgotten statue
Collects dust every passing day:
A man tells his lover
That he has found some other.
Don’t wait up for me,
We’ll never again be together.
The only comfort here is
To think of what could have been.
I sob in the still night,
Thinking of your lewd sin.
The flame has blown out;
The passion has gone and left,
Just as the lone statue still remains
At the reflecting window
Of timeless, eternal shame.

 

Dial

By Amy Friauf

I wait for the ringing;
I lay outspread weeping,
The phone looms near
As I quake with internal fear.
You do not call,
Yet your name and face
I continue to thrall.
Have you lost the number,
Or shall I try harder?
I can’t wait for You–
I must dial without argue.
Reaching for the phone
I tremble to the bone.
But you don’t reply;
Your love I don’t deny
So then I sigh
And continue to standby,
Waiting for the ringing
As I lay weeping…
