Member Rara Avis
With mixed emotions rushing by
Preparing to depart.
To leave behind these ghostly walls.
To leave behind my heart.
The hallways drip with emptiness,
My footsteps echo loud
'Cross mem'ries of a simple life
Falls a somber shroud.
Another glance into the bedroom
Where we once acted love
Those walls saw so much happiness
Though now, nothing's left of
The laughter which once resounded
Twixt whispered forevers,
Gentle caresses in the night,
And promises to n'er
Let the other cross o'er the Earth
Alone, to face life's trials.
But promises made during times
O' joy, are just denial
Of the pain a broken heart brings
Preparing to depart
The empty halls of ghostly love
To face another start.
Sigh Kess. I must say that you've brought tears to my eyes. It is hard, lonely and I admit in a way a bit scary. I feel as if I've spent my whole life moving and moving and moving. I wonder sometimes if I'll ever find a place to call home, with someone to make it feel like such. Who knows? All I know, is that as long as I have friends like you, I will never be truly alone. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
