Locked Down And Lonely - Poem by Tim Cook

Locked down and lonely
A feeling of the painful kind
I Think now if only
Oh if I hadn't lost my mind

And all of your sweet tears
They are Running down your face
Bringing back forgotten years
Of our old happy place

But baby now that's gone
But the feeling still so strong
And I'm left looking for a friend

Once again
Oh once again

The candles they are melting
And the light begins to fade
I know that I was helping
To build this hell that we have made

But I don't to good with pressure
And the feeling of remorse
Is filling up my lonely heart
And it's taking on its course

Well I know the I was wrong
But the feeling still so strong
And I'm left looking for a friend

Once again
Oh once again

Your beauty and you tenderness
Used to save me from my hell
But now this feeling that I love the best
Has vanished down the well

And all the pales filled with water
Now are filled with tears
And I'm driving down this lonely road
in my highest gear

But baby now I'm gone
And the booze I drink is strong
And I'm left looking for the end

Once again
Oh once again

And I think I finally found what I'm looking for,
Now I'm nothing more
Than a shadow on the floor
Behind a closed door
And I'm sure
I've seen this place before....

    Lost love can be painful, but it does a great thing for great creativity and this poem is great. I like the lyrical aspect of it, which gives it more dramatic affect. Great job Mr Cook (Report) Reply
