Ache of You

i sit
listening
quietly
to an old song
that reminds me
of you
and your promise
of a love that never was
i stare with sad emptiness
at a blinking screen
typing words that can never express
the pain you infused in me
the vacancy of your heart
reaching for my light
suffocating its inner fire
with your weakness
how i loved you
how you destroyed me
how your distortion of humanity
shredded my sanity
the blackness within your heart
taking over mine
making a song of hope
a mere fantasy
and your love
simply a nightmare
that took years to overcome
yet now that i am awake
i no longer carry the ache
of you

here’s hoping emotional justice comes eventually…
i raise my glass to all you survivors.

    awakening leads to a lifetime of rebirth in journey..those who remain asleep never get the experience of growth.

    beautiful. I have just began my beginning after 15 years of such a love…but, I don’t think I’ll ever not carry the ache of him somewhere within my heart.
