How i felt....

How i felt....

A Poem by Lord of Madmen

I stood in the rain waiting for you


That rain turned to a downpour but I did not give

I watched you laugh and smile


I tried to speak but words never left my mouth


Or the words I wanted to speak


I never filled my words with venom and spite


Then lightning began to strike


Every time it would I looked for you to help


I saw you were better off


So I turned and began to walk in the rain


That’s when I heard your soft tears hit the floor


It was too late to turn back


The ground had already begun to flood


It carried me away as I fought to get back to you


When I managed to swim back


I saw you smiling and happy


Say I laid down and began to die


I could not cry any longer


I saw glimpses of you and I


I saw hope but that to soon drowned


One’s mind and heart can only take so much


I reached out for you but you did not see


You were busy with him


Now I was waiting to die


Death never came 

no matter how many times I called


So I closed my eyes to wait once more


I heard someone calling to me


I knew this voice well


It was not yours but another


One I had tried to push from my heart with no success


She remained there


She offered me her hand


I looked at you


I waited and waited


Then I took it.

 

We began to walk then I looked back


I saw you looking at me


I felt like I had betrayed you


You said something and I froze


I could not go or stay


Then I saw you in turn to face him


I looked away one last time.


Then walked away still wishing to see you again someday…

I can't quite put my finger on what the deeper meaning of this is. I see deep hurt, loneliness, and the other persons obliviousness, constantly breaking you, makes my soul churn, and ache. This piece is truly beautiful and I personally encourage you to never stop writing just because of pieces like this. Xoxo someone you use to know.
