Without You - Poem by William Lindenmuth

I sat in dazed confusion
Not knowing what to do
Surrounded by my loneliness
To live life without you
My life it lost all meaning
There’s a churning feeling inside
I hope my heart can take
This hurting bumpy ride
I ‘ve walked these roads before
While picking up the pieces
It’s a lonely walk
That seems to lead nowhere
But I’ll move on
Till all this heartache ceases
I’ll live my life
Without you
You told me that you cared
Who were you fooling
You used me for so long
You played me well
I chose to look away
My eyes weren’t seeing
I had existence
Without being
And now that I fight back
You think I’ve changed
You sit and wonder
And say I’m acting strange
What you are seeing
Is truly me
I took the time to open
up my eyes
I ‘ve learned to see
Life will go on
You’ll go your own way
And I’ll walk on
And live my life
Without you

    This gives me goosebumps...for the wrong reasons. In any situation of a lost love one sees only a miniscule part of the whole picture, in that moment feel only a fragment of pain. Like an unwatered plant, love shrivels, time to say Goodbye....Cindy (Report) Reply
