The Road Feels Different Now - Poem by Mikael Hansson

I have been driving on this road before
I know it very well
The environment looks so familiar
But the feeling is so unfamiliar

I know the road will still be here tomorrow
But it feels pointless
It doesn’t lead anywhere anymore
What once was is no longer

It’s nothing more than a dead flower
It was once alive sparkling with colors
But now it’s gone
It’s nothing more than an empty shell
Symbolizing what once was

Your room is still there, but it’s now empty
The silence is just screaming but only I can hear it
Sometimes I wish I go back to the day
When your room was full of you

It’s time to move on
It’s time to put new seeds in the soil
But a broken farmer can grow no flowers
What’s the point
A new flower will never replace you

It’s said that time will heal all wounds
But I’m not a patient man

Topic(s) of this poem: broken heart, love

I just drive my ex to airport, she is leaving the country. I love her, but our relationship is toxic and is slowly killing me. So I need to cut all ties with her.

    Yeah I was really emotional and upset when writing this poem, they tend be much more powerful when written in that state of mind!

    Thanks for your compliment :)
