fading away

now the nights are all empty and the days have turned cold
this is the poem of a writer who cannot compose
its feels like weeks but its just been days
since she has gone away
my piano is all stained
with tears that fell like rain
i think falling in love was my first mistake
all of this loneliness is just too much to take
on the battlefield of love the enemy has gone to stay
my heart is bleeding, my body’s cold, and my soul is fading away
i guess i can take the pressure
as i search for my next line
but its all sunken treasure
that no one will ever find

circa 1985
