Facing the Past


  • Lost Love

    Facing the Past

    Heading down a dirt road
    My heart still intact
    But breaking as the memories
    Keep coming back
    I kept thinking it was me
    You kept thinking
    You were free
    I’m stand by the fire
    With one last bridge to burn
    I’m standing by the fire
    But which way do I turn
    Either way I go
    I know
    I cant go back
    And that’s a cold hard fact
    You made me a promise
    Under a moonlit sky
    That no matter where we go
    That we would always be together
    Somewhere underneath the sky
    We would look up and cry
    Now I know that was all a lie
    Visions enclose me
    Perpetuating an illusion
    Of what we use to see
    Reality is a light that focuses
    On what has become
    An unrealistic sanity
    But your so stuck on vanity
    Pretending that I am to blame
    But it doesn’t matter
    The fact is…
    My feelings have changed
    Nothing still remains
    What did you expect from me
    Why can’t you ever just let things be
    And still you call
    I refuse to fall
    I can see right through you
    I know what you are trying to do
    I fight back the tears
    But now I am facing all my fears

    very nice writing i can relate to what you wrote.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
