Foolish Hopes

I went to look for you today
Foolish hope when will you die?
I knew you wouldn’t be there..
A stupid waste of time
I didn’t know it would hurt so bad
I thought that I was strong
I left no doubt of my attentions
And still against all hope
I went to look for you today
What did I expect?
I really expected nothing
Blind, foolish ,impossible hopes
It is time to leave you behind
It is time to say goodbye
But, yet against all hope
I went and looked for you today.

Unforgiven.

If you knew how much I really cared
There wouldn’t be this distance now between us
Your anger always gets between
You haven’t learned how to forgive

How very proud, I am of you
Empty words are all you hear
There has been too much between us
You haven’t learned how to forgive

The talent is there, I wish you knew
But, you deny your true self,too
And this anger lies between us
You haven’t learned how to forgive

Pain is all that you can see
Blinding you, blinding me
Bringing anger to lie between us
You haven’t learned how to forgive

Ultimately Lonely.

Loneliness what a desperate place

You do not have to be alone to go there

Sitting across the table with nothing ever to say

Is one of the loneliest places to be

It makes sense to feel lonely if you are alone

People understand why that would be

But, even in a crowd amidst the laughter

There is still lonely me

Our lives are lived alone, really

Our own thoughts occupy our own minds

We view the world through our own eyes, nobody else

At the end of the day it is ourselves that we face

Perhaps it is true what has been said

“Maybe existence is ultimately a lonely thing.” Errol Morris

Strong Soul.

You think in vain you cannot be harmed

You’ve toughened up

You don’t let them see you cry

You won’t give them that

They have robbed you of your peace

They have terrorized your soul

They have left you shattered

But, they can’t take away your soul

You say it no longer matters

But we all know that’s a lie

Disillusionment is all you have left

Your eyes are dry, the tears won’t come

You won’t give them those

They have used you

They have abandoned you

They have left you shattered

But, they can’t take away your soul

Left you for dead

Cared not if you lived

You upstaged them all

They won’t hear a whimper

You won’t give them that

They mocked and abused you

They didn’t give a damn about you

They left you shattered

But, they can’t take away your soul
