Pulling from the archives
And there it ends, just like that…
Before you know it, its gone.
Leaving behind a lot unsaid, untold and unheard
Ever so quietly it had creeped in,
Ever so quietly it left without uttering a word
Left here waiting, hoping and longing
We slide like shifting grains of sand.
Do we feel the pain, not yet!
Its so damn numb down there in the deepest corners of the heart
It sets in then, as time slips by
A lot of longing, a lot of hoping,
A lot of waiting and a desperate sigh!
Broken hearts, tears and sobs
Nothing can make it return
Nothing can make the fire burn
Yet again by yourself, on a lonesome street
Not a shred of joy, not a wisp of happiness
It isn’t sorrow you feel
An unending, limitless, all enshrouding pain
Pain, that you can’t bear again…
You want to wish it away
Its been your friend so long
And now…. its here to stay!
