My Heart Will Always Be Yours

I feel like I’m getting sucked into a black hole

The life I live is no longer my own

I see strangers wandering along my path of misery

I used to have a reason, a reason to stay

In this rat infested place we call earth

But when you said goodbye

All my hope and desires just went away

I can’t sleep, I try to close my weary eyes

But all I can think about is you

I can’t help wondering how things would’ve been

If I only just said what I felt, deep inside…

But I tell you now; even I know it’s too late

My love for you is the only thing that kept me standing

Now I’m tired, still standing in line

Waiting till my time has come

The day you said goodbye, my heart was ripped apart

There were times I thought things were getting better

Times I thought I could love another

But they all turned out the same

The girl got hurt and I stood alone, once again

If I would only get one more chance

If you’d only know what I felt for you

Things might be turned out differently

But I feel my end is getting near

So I can only hope we meet again

Not in this life but in the next

Where we can begin a fresh start

My love for you is eternal and shall forever last

Now I say goodbye and wait for you

On the other side

Hoping, but Always Denied

Too often so isolated

Abandoned in a void of pain and despair

Without a sense of being wanted

By anyone at all out there

 

A desire for companionship so strong

Striving to embrace some future shining sun

Yet no one lovely did ever come along

That would want and provide one

 

No one to call upon in times of great need

Like a single bent tree in strong winds having grown

A rose bed of love now just full of weeds

Never really having been properly sown

 

No one special with which to share wealth obtained

An absence of kind words and a warm embrace

A shirt dark, wet and stained

By trails of tears falling from one’s face

 

A dark figure of dread casting their shadow,

Over one’s existence and place

Marching with time’s relentless flow,

Withering away one’s will at pace

 

All from a sad and lonely heart
