For You

For You

A Poem by Christian Bonoan

My life is so lost without you

I'm running, I've become haunted

I hope the fire won't catch me now

'cause you are all I wanted


I tripped and the fire caught me

as I see you vanish from the smoke

my skin got burned with all the flames

my heart was never been this broke


Another day, I stared at the mirror

as I suffer from the symptoms

of having no one just the door

waiting if you'll come back to me


I'm alone in this little house

where we built dreams together

until you burned them all down

and I'm alone watering them back to life.


I wonder if I'm just waiting

for no one or nothing at all

maybe I've put myself so high

as if I am that important at all


Am I the only one fighting?

because I couldn't fight alone

I want us to grow as one again

and live our lives in this house.

Honest and true thoughts felt in your words.
"Am I the only one fighting?
because I couldn't fight alone
I want us to grow as one again
and live our lives in this house."
I liked the above lines. I felt the need and the want of the words. Thank you Christian for sharing your excellent poetry.

Thanks for your kind words Mariwel! I appreciate it so much!
Very raw and emotional, yet passionate and beautiful in a tragic way.
The words bring so many feelings, and seem to just bleed emotions of loneliness, confusion, and loss.
Good job here.
