Walking under this moon
I dont look up
The sky burned red as the sun dropped
I didnt look out
Below me the roses glow
and I dont look down

I am holding the the heartache
behind my eyes
Back of my throat
Constricting my chest
Now that I can breathe
I find I cant breathe

My hands clenched down by my sides
hold nothing but life gone by
The space my heart used to be
The end of a beautiful dream
and the heartache I handmade
with the memory of your face

So we walk alone
not thinking about what's gone
or the eyes that followed from home
or cold space in a bed shared with noone
or the long walk home
or the stars watching us go

We dont dance
We dont smile
We dont dream
Or hope
touch
or smile

We just carve out
removing everything but the pain
the Handmade heartache
of which we are now made
before the tears come
and the day brings us home      

  

I aint as good as I once was but I'm as good, once, as I ever was. - Toby Keith

and the heartache I handmade
with the memory of your face


The pain is felt in this intensely emotional, well written poem.
