Hello fellow writers. Just struggling a bit with loneliness, so thought I would write down something to get it off my chest.
How long can a heart bleed?
How much blood can it lose?
Is true love only found once in a lifetime?
Have I already lost that love
because I never found it?
Was I too busy with life?
Did I miss your look?
Did I not recognize your heart?
Did you try to tell me and I didn't hear?
Loneliness has come to stay,
it has moved in and taken up residence,
an unwanted roommate,
messy and lazy,
only too happy to point out my failures.
Someday that special someone will come along
that's what they say and sing
but what if they did and I missed the song
and never danced or held her in my arms?
How can I truly love someone else
when I don't really love myself?
How can I accept them when I reject me?
I once held great optimism
and just knew I would find her someday.
When I have finally come to a place in my life
where I am better equipped to be selfless,
more experienced in truly loving someone,
and a kinder, more gentle person,
I find myself alone.
Love, I have to believe you are out there somewhere.
