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.

What a sentimental work, truly phenomenonal in the classic sense of invoking one's emotions, to ravel in those emotions, to gobble up the relatable notions of sorrows. Such a refined beauty of sorrows, emotionally invoking and lovely verses. Simple in the usage of words but effectively executed. A splendid work, author grace.

dear Grace… most of us have been down lonely roads… and sometimes as Robert Frost the Poet would say— we take the Path less taken. We grow along broken fences where flowers bloom in Summer … we feel for others in their struggles. Perhaps we choose to spend our days with understanding of how the World turns around each difficult decision. Gently, Pat
