How Could This Be? - Poem by Daniel Richards

How could this be?
I’m left suspended, disbelieving
In a well of separation, thinking
About the dreams I held shattered upon ones leaving

I wish my eyes were deceiving me,
Everywhere I look, I see pain
I feel the restrain of care
With the inescapable feeling, I’m the one to blame

I’m left with emotions,
That once held love now attacking, me
How could this be, when the one who took leave
Is on a self serving expedition, and not coming back to me

There was once a time when my heart held love
And was recharged by the love it received,
Once full off passion but now left being deceived
With negative feelings building inside of me
The weight is heavy and is draining me

My back aches,
It’s beginning to snap
And in my mind I’m terrified
What will happen if I don’t get my lady back?

Time is of the essence, these words be so true
In the effervescent light of pain and dismay
I see you in the cracked mirror of me
In every mirror everyday

How could this be?
I’m left suspended, disbelieving
In a well of separation
About the dreams I held, shattered upon ones leaving
