Lost Cause - Poem by Eman Awad

Searching in faces,
but there is no fimiliar face i know.
Looking for places,
but there is no place for me to go.
I'm nothing without you,
and i'm missing you so much.
And my thoughts are about you,
i can't forget your beautiful touch.
Finding that i can't tell all,
but i was so in love and i felt more than in love.
He was the first love of all,
and my life started with him and words aren't enough.
Leaving him made me unfree,
i felt broken and hurt in his silence pause.
Some thing is broken in me,
but at least i died for my cause.
A lost cause i know,
i couldn't get the guy to love.
And my pain grow,
i couldn't get the guy to fall.
But you can never force a heart to love,
you can never force that guy to fall.
But i made a bet over my life,
that i would make those lips smile.
That i'd make this love survive,
till forever maybe but for a longer while.
But i lost it all over this,
not just my life but the hope in tomorrow.
I gained pain and lonliness,
i gained misery and wounds and sorrow.
Weary words of a weary heart,
but what do i have but words?
Every time he smiles i lose a part,
of the remaining smile and it hurts.
I fought in some one else's war,
a lost cause that i tried very hard to win.
I knocked a closed door,
that will never be opened for a story,
a story will never begin...
