Tag Archives: separation


Wondering how they reached that place, turning their backs and walking away; back to the ball of merriment, where laughter and play is the name of the game, and the medicated haze once thought just a phase, does nothing but illuminate his illusion.

I have no room for any more sadness
That sleepy Sunday morning marking my departure
Once again I say goodbye to that which I love
And by my own volition I relinquish my own heart

On the long turbulent wind that carried me south
I felt the void of separation in each passing mile
And I cursed myself for turning such beauty from me
Not knowing when or if it will come to me again

In this silence


Too many used to be’s
Faded away with

Not enough now’s
To sustain us
Into tomorrow
