Lucky To Have Loved (Alphabet)

by Lost star   Nov 10, 2021



Another night without sleep
Because my heart is heavy,
Can't we see things through or
Don't you want to?
Eye's are raw and tired
From ceaseless tears,
Gone are the days of memories.
How am I supposed to
Identify with me instead of us?
Just hold me close with
Kind arms around me,
Love me once more until the
Morning sun rises and
Never more shall I ask a thing.
Open as I've always been but
Paralyzed in thoughts of
Questions that constantly
Reaches into my mind.
Sometimes I think of when we
Tangoed under moonlight
Until the stars went to bed, now
Visions are all I hold inside
When all else seems dead
X-ray my heart and all
You'll see is you, and then
Zephyrs took you from me

    This flows so well that it doesn’t even feel it’s an entire alphabet. I love how raw it is, the emotion weaved into every line. It paints a wonderful picture, raises a lot of questions and really makes your heart ache.

    “Sometimes I think of when we

    These lines in particular hit me really hard. Reflecting on a past memory, maybe one you hold dearly, and knowing that time has moved the two of you in different directions. Yet the person still holds a permanent spot in your heart. I love it. Jealous of how effortlessly you wrote it.
