all  by  my  self

is  this  truly  my  fate?

∙϶∙

faced  with  choices
decisions  not  made
determined

which  direction  i’d  go

if   we  don’t  move

f o r w a r d

when  given  the  option

we  are  choosing

to  live  in  the  past

…alone

i  listened  to  my  fears
never
to  risk
that  love  might  succeed

now…     all  by  my  self

regretting  the  roads  not  taken
a  cliché,  but  true

too  late  to  change

the  indecisions  made

loneliness  swirls  around  me

…..ever  faster      ….ever  thicker

a  tornado  in  the  making

a  crowd  stands  outside  its  reach

watching  it  bear  me  away

only  caring

that  it  does  not  touch  them

all by my self

is this truly my fate?

∙϶∙

when faced with choices
my indecision
determined

which direction i’d take

if  we don’t move

forward

when we have the option

we are choosing

to live in the past

alone

i listened to my fears
never
to take the chance
that love could succeed

now…   all by my self

regretting the roads not taken
a cliché, but true

too late to change

the indecisions made

the world without you

·•∞•·

so dark
can’t you hear the emptiness?

so cold
can’t you taste the pain?

so unimaginable
can’t you smell the sorrow?

so quiet
can’t you touch the loneliness?

so terrifying
can’t you see the remorse?

the world without you
leaves me so lost

·•∞•·

can’t you find forgiveness?

·•∞•·
