Poof, I’m Gone

I have had to ask

More than once

Do I matter

You turn silent

You are distant

And our time is short

Once again

You close your mouth

Your eyes are averted

And you make yourself scarce

I’m getting tired of wondering

If I still matter to you

I may no longer ask

And just follow your lead

And disappear

Fandango’s Friday Flashback – January 3

I am glad to be able to have caught up enough to sneak this post in today.  I have missed doing these FFFs.  This week we go back to January 3rd, 2017  with a post that was originally here.

 

Silence

When the silence hits

It cuts to the bone.

 

There are no more angry words

No more tears

No more smiles

No more laughter

No more moments of tenderness

 

…just utter silence

Stillness

Solitude

Emptiness

Loneliness

 

Since you’ve been

Gone.

Lack Of Compassion

You laughed when you saw it
A beautiful young girl
Who slipped on the ice
You found it hilarious
I feared she was hurt

You brushed it aside
Like you didn’t even hear it
The words of pain
I poured out to you
That hot August night

You thought it was crazy
To take the time to help
Someone that was struggling
With a baby in their arms
And no food to feed her

You didn’t even stop
And giving a fleeting glimpse back
The day you left me
With tears in my eyes
And empty thoughts of the future

How did you become so shallow
That you laughed at the broken
Turned on a friend
Ignored the helpless
And abandoned love

Since you are gone now
I will never know…

Losing Control (FOWC)

There was a time
That I would have jumped
The minute you said to
There was a time
When I believed in you
When you were still unsure
There was a time
When the future looked bright
When we had little to show

Those days are gone
You have lost control
And I can’t stand the pain anymore
Those days are gone
You lie so much
And I can’t find peace anymore
Those days are gone
You spew hate
And I can’t feel love anymore

Without You

I took you to
The local favorites
Just to share
My town with you
Now that you’re gone
Those places haunt me
Without you, without you

I shared my
Heart with you
Because you moved me
Stirring emotions in me
Now that you’re gone
It barely beats
Without you, without you

I did my best
To make you family
Including you when I could
In all I did
Now that you’re gone
My family feels fractured
Without you, without you

Without you
I cant breathe
Without you
My soul cries
Without you
I feel lost
Without you, without you

Lost without you…
