~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Truth Hurts Sometimes
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Early evening city lights
no longer day, but not quite night
I'm lost inside the misty window view
Staring at familiar rain
I ask myself again, again
what did I do?
Was I so wrong for you?

I felt the space between us slowly widen
as you found out that I could never be
the one you dreamed forever would be perfect company
Truth hurts sometimes
This time its hurting me

I see your face on every wall
hear your voice in every call
the imprint much too strong to fade away
You're there on every passing bus
to places they'll remember us
I reach for you and wind back yesterday

Witnessing your laughter lose its brightness
and more and more excuses not to show
I really should have known that I'd be sitting here alone
Truth hurts sometimes
This time its hurting me

It wasn't over angry words
I pleaded but could not be heard
you'd made your mind to go

I guess its time I faced the fact
it's permanent, you won't be back
you're never gonna show
again

My face is carved from ancient stone
the letters pile like no-ones home
the milk has turned again outside my door
Time drags me through another hour
another day, another shower
I'm staring through the window mist once more

You're gone but not forgotten, never will be
the scars are far too deep to ever heal
I thought for just one minute I was good enough for you
Truth hurts sometimes
This time its hurting me

"If to rectify your demeanor,
You must imitate another,
Your philosiphy on morality
Is a burden on your mentality,
Your actions based on popularity,
Will never fulfill you internally,
Cuz the world was not blessed with equality,
But rather with fake geniality.

You portrayed the hurt in this well. Sorry you're hurting. I don't think it was cause you weren't good enough though, I am sure you probably were. Maybe there is something better coming along. I hope so. (((HUGS)))

Graham, reading this reminds me that I've really missed you around here. Welcome back and, once again, wonderful work.

Graham,you clearly express a sentiment which has got to be one of the hardest for us all to endure.There can be a million reasons though,why someone chooses to go away.Many of these reasons could have little to do with a personal rejection.Sometimes the details are hidden in the closed compartments of a human heart.
I always try to remember that no-one can ever take away what really was.

P.S.-You live in a land which has always been
very close to my heart.Just returned from a 5 week visit there.

Hearty welcome to Passions...

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Great response from you all...I'm truly grateful.

(Have I been away so long?....sorry...I'll try for more regular attendance ....especially as I seem to be in good company ...but I'll try not to wave the Uninon Jack)

Wow!.. Graham...

You never disappoint me. Those feelings you had in this poem, (however, unfounded , im sure).. and so to the bottom of ones soul. The truth does hurt. and you my friend, always tell the truth.

In this case, I hope that truth, never comes true.
