Ended This Way

Ended This Way

A Poem by Ethale Captor

Has it truly ended this way?

I'm so sorry
Sorry it ended this way
Wish I could go back
Back and save the day
The day I face the consequence
Consequence of all of your lies
LIES Everything was fine now
Now its falling apart 
Right in front of my eyes
In front of my eyes
My eyes
My eyes have seen forever
Forever in a day
A day to hesitate
And save what is long forgotten
Forgotten in the past
A past memory
Will you remember me?
Here in our place
Our place here in time
Time to decide
Decide what side you are fighting for
And fight to save your life
Your life with all your memories
Remedies of your thoughts
Everything you've been taught
For everything, you have fought
You lost in battle and now are all alone
Alone doesn't mean lonely
Remember you aren't the only
One who wants to go back to that day
And change the way
It ended to save
Your thoughts, love, and memories
As time heals the scars
You turn toward the stars
And wonder why
Why everything ended the way it did
With overhead star showers in the skies
You slip into hypnotic dreams
And sing delusional lullabies
The lack of color lulls you to sleep
You will not wake
For your sake now
You are safe from it all
I am sorry
I would come back for you
But it is just a little too late
You have already slipped away
I am so sorry
For you
It ended this way

Well crafted and thought provoking writing-for me, an exploration of 'its over' yet, as you rightly suggest, 'alone is not the same as lonely' alone can mean space to just exist and consider where do I go from here-great writing giving the reader much to take away and consider further

"Alone doesn't mean lonely" I like that line. Full of passion and enrgy.

Thank you very much.
This is super great and thoughtful and true. It's like I can relate to it and I think you did a fabulous job. Have you ever thought about writing music?
