No More (2017)

Written 09/04/17

Today I stopped waiting,

Cause social media is a lie

It’s a facade I partake in

Despite the troubles inside

No matter what monsters I hide

Or fickle displays of pride

I thought you should know, I tried

 

I waited in secret, I waited in sorrow

For a dream that has no tomorrow

I waited on love, and friendship

Despite those who said to let go

But I held on, like a child at a fair

Bespelled by all the noise and lights

Yet clinging to those i hold dear

 

I tried.

I waited.

I prayed.

For too long I stayed.

 

yesterday is over,

And life’s pushing on

The trail of memories

Has come to a swift end,

There’s no path around the corner

Where we walk together

It’s diverging commute

And we have split ways

Here I see a train

Imploded on one end,

Coming around the bend...

 

It’s scary I agree,

This life without me

Like I said, I waited

And time is up, it’s on to the next

With this weary journey

Continuing on till the very

Last stop when others 

Are in mourning

And heaven is the next journey.
