What We've Become

So this is what we've become
Snappish and hurtful and weak
The silence speaks the things that
We can't get past our lips
But the pain in my heart
Still exists
The fires of my regrets singe me
How prophetic, how poetic
You used to touch me and say you
Loved the way I looked
Playing me by the book
How high you took me, and
How low you've brought me now
Yesterday I tried to love you
But today I don't know how
There is comfort in solitude
I can shake off the terror of dreams
Feel the cold of lonliness
That isn't as cold as it seems
It's a blessing in disguise
The blessing I can't find
Alone, still loving you.

------------------
The night is my companion
The solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied?
Sarah MacLachlan, "Possession"

An expressive poem, but I had trouble understanding the last few lines.

This is exquisitely done...the feelings pour out of it...the same ones that sit bottled up inside of me. You've expressed it perfectly, Rhiannon
