My Facade of Sanity

by Mezmeryz   Jul 24, 2010

The love is lost, it has stolen all,
The pain of loneliness remains.
Reminiscences swallowed by the past,
And we have now misplaced its reigns.

If you were not my life and soul,
It would have been okay.
How do I explain to my stubborn heart?
No need now to display its bouquet.

Change has devoured your mind.
Yet the promises set aside,
Leave me lodged between hope
And reality; in which I reside.

Pretence is the final game.
My facade to uphold sanity:
'I am not moved by the change';
As acknowledgment may be vanity.

What greater wound can a soul bear?
Deep are depths of pains display;
When someone becomes your life,
Then takes your life away.

    Every word rang true like a bell of crystal, clear and loud. You could have taken my emotions and with them wrote this poem.
    Great mix of emotion and longing.

    Mournful and well written. The flow is flawless and I really like reading this one. The final stanza of the poem really touched me! I feel so sorry for you if it really happened. Wish the wound would heal soon :D

    Great job.

    Take care,
