All Alone

by Hawaiian Chick   Oct 25, 2009

I woke up today with empty arms,
the ghost leaving with my eyes
I scream each night in memory
and the thought of sad goodbyes

The cold creeps in so slowly
and reminds me I'm alone
Your smell still taints the pillow
the sweet smell of your cologne

I wasn't prepared to be left here
and you weren't ready to leave
I thought we'd live forever
that's what we both believed.

I long to hold you closely
and have your arms round me
sleeping becomes a burden
as I lay here quietly

Why did you leave me all alone
with no one left to fend
Your heart is lost forever
with my pain never to end

    This is a well penned piece,,,with a perfect rhyme scheme that made the poem flow perfectly too..I could feel the profound sadness and loneliness behind this piece..The silent tears were immensely over flowing through his piece..Take care...
