Behind - Poem by james d nall,jr

I walk at night, all by myself..., you see?
Empty streets waiting... to greet only me
No one to converse with...just the Wind
Wishing...my broken heart could mend
Higher than those old, barren mountains
Sadness flowing, like water through fountains
This day I dread...much more than all others
Because, deep...in my chest...my heart smothers
Through tears and pure...complete mental agony
Each day I relive... this endless, insane tragedy
Upon the winds...I hear you calling out...my name
Doing you're best....to drive me insane
After all, when everything was said and done
On my shoulders, Guilt, weighed many a tonne
So my days and nights are filled with regret
But, to this day, I haven't given up...yet!
