The pain inside my soul
is painted and flavored
by the emptiness I feel,
thinking of the eternity of time
I now must spend wandering alone
toward the grave that awaits us all.
There was a time,
not so very long ago
that I was happy.
I truly believed in the eternal nature
of the promises you made
that summer day you took my name
and cemented the bonds.
I find it hard now to believe
my naivete and blindness.
The scars are permanent, but I find
my love for you is also.
I hope someday you can put away the need to escape
and rediscover the happy sober person
I was once blessed to spend my days with.
I lost her somewhere – I pray that you can find her
and be happy.
