Everyone left the party

Everyone left the party

A Poem by grace
"

yet no one stayed to clean the mess

"
I am walking alone,
Christmas lights on the road.
And i know,
I am the type of girl that comes with many,
but goes home alone.

City lights burning me,
unfunny memories, and i choke,
I coast down the streets looking for
somebody i dont know.

"Oh no, what a sad ending,"
"Oh no, never expected u'll break,"
"Oh no," is what they say to me,
as i wander in the empty lane.

Why am i still holding on,
to something that's long flown.
Why am I still bidding on,
for something that has lost its cost.

now i sit reminiscing, just me,
small town cafe on a New Year's Eve,
'cause there's no table for one at dinner parties,
or fancy hotels where i could be.

Unused candles at every table,
flickering lights, dusty chairs,
oh, i hear noises through a broken window,
countdown has just begun, and i choke,
a drop of tear and its new year.

"Oh no, what a sad ending,"
"Oh no, just a chapter is what u'll ever be,"
"Oh no," is what they say to me,
as i cry myself to sleep.

why do i try to hold the sand,
when it just slips right through my hands.
why i am trying to touch the light,
when it just burns me so bright.

"Oh no, what a sad ending,"
"Oh no," they say.

Sounds like the reason some people drink their way through the holidays to me. I just want to stay at home. I don't much like people anyway.

This is so amazing and sadly relatable. I'm so glad that somebody was able to put this into words.

Thankyou so much for reading my poems, dear! I am really pleased by your generous reviews.
this was a beautiful piece. somber. melancholy.
with a dash of daydreaming and longing.
this section hit the hardest:
~
why do i try to hold the sand,
when it just slips right through my hands.
why i am trying to touch the light,
when it just burns me so bright.

I think this is lovely. I'm sure it's much more alive when hearing it in song too.

I can relate to the message as well.

don't sell it or yourself short. Lyrics are among the most ancient forms of poetic expression.

I am the type of girl that comes with many/but goes home alone is a knockout line.

there is nothing like being a third wheel or having others day nasty things about you....it is so painful and you try to ignore it, but it doesn't leave you so quickly, it even flows into your dreams.....you paint quite a perfect picture of this kind of person, alone, unhappy, wondering why me? I call it fate and it hits you like a swinging bat....your portrayal is excellent, very moving, very graceful....
Warmly, B
