If there is nothing to lose

If there is nothing to lose

Just kind of came to me in the midst of studying...odd lol. But anyway, enjoy ( :

"
With parting we realize what there is to lose
The feelings swarm us and overwhelm us until we surrender to their dark demands.
And the feelings choose to reside within the hollowest part of our heart
So when we look to find hope to survive the ache,
We discover it there each and every time
Like it waits for the joy so it can show itself and remind us of what there was to lose
What we chose to conveniently misplace?
What was taken right from underneath us-our lives taken for granted for too long?
Like a rug being tugged from under our feet
Leaving us head over heels deep in reality
Finally on the bottom looking up to where we once stood tall; fearless
Wishing that for just one moment
Just for as long as it took to fall
We could remain standing
To remember the feeling of warmth 
When the dark pit left in the hollows  of our heart seemed to have been a myth,
Told by many, few ignorant to its threshold.
But we do not live in a fable tale,
Where three wishes are granted to reach our aspirations,
Where we can click our heels to turn back the hand of time,
Where happy endings are guaranteed at the chapter's end,
But in a limbo.
Where second chances come slim to all who've ever desired,
To all who've had their heart emptied in front of their eyes
Leaving only the dimness of loss and regret.
But after all
What is there to live for,
If there is nothing to lose?
