Hollow And Free

I cannot believe we've ended here
our path will now part ways.
You've been so much
a part of my soul and my life
Nothing will ever be the same.

To let you go now
and move on alone.
Is so hard for me to do
somehow I thought I'd know.

I know I caused this tragedy
this devestation to my life.
I loved you too much
and yet I still failed you each night.

I let myself believe
those words you told me were true.
I believed it wasn't as bad as I thought
but in my heart I knew.

So now we move on
in different directions.
All those wounds that you healed
are left unprotected.

The safety I'd found
screaming silently quiet.
As I stumble around
to find a calm to their riot.

I know
I made you walk so easily away.
I wish you happiness forever
nothing less all your days.

And now I'll wake up
go through the motions of life.
Caring for our children
pretending it's alright.

Put a smile on perfect
glued on so tight.
So no one will be effected
by what I lost there that night,

No one will know
no one will see.
When our paths that night parted
I became hollow
and you free.

Wow! ! This poem hits the nail on the head. I have been struggling through something very similar for about the last year now. I especially know this well: Put a smile on perfect glued on so tight. So no one will be effected by what I lost there that night, Very telling and quietly powerful. I wish you all the best. stan
