Sunset Emotions

The gentle wind sweeps through my orange hair as the early spring sun sinks in the clear blue sky, bringing with it a cool breeze,
cold like my icy blue eyes.

I sit emotionless, staring out to sea, the gentle waves crashing & cascading off the yellow rocks below, the dusky pink sky on the horizon,
shining as it reflects upon the perfect silvery water.

yet I feel nothing.

Nothing but sorrow, nothing but emptiness, nothing but loneliness
without you here to share this perfect moment with.

I wonder to myself, do I ever cross your mind?
and if I do, does it make you smile?
does my voice dominate your every thought?
because it seems every waking moment is about you,
and every little thing I see or do reminds me of you.

Like the waves crashing below me, my emotions race.
tears fill up but I refuse to let go, refuse to cry,
knowing it will do me no good….

You’ll never love me.
you’ll never love the girl with orange hair and icy blue eyes,
you’ll never let thoughts of her dominate your life.
you’ll never hold her in your arms like she longs for every live long moment and you’ll never be hers.

Love makes no difference when it isn’t returned.
my feelings are stronger than ever before but what’s the use?
what’s the point?
after all, I’m barely anything to you,
and I can barely stand it any longer.

But For now I’ll swallow my pride,
I’ll keep on smiling,
acting like the world is a beautiful place,
acting like my whole heart isn’t shattered into tiny shards.

I’ll wear this painted smile for you but just know that deep down,
without you here,
I’ve never felt so alone.
