man struggles with lost love

A chapter in the book Surviving Silent Storms

No Goodbyes

by Warren Rodgers

As sunlight fades he hears a voice,
it calls to him in whispered tones.
It speaks the eloquence of truth,
from disappointments, he now owns.

The voice speaks clearly to his soul,
for fear has bound his heart inside,
without the one true love he had,
or on this earth will ever find.

He listens like a sentenced man,
with not a touch or whimpered hug.
No one to hold his hollow heart,
or answer echoes of his love.

He crawls a long and thorny path,
to wander days through dark despair,
familiar to the beast inside,
who mocks with glee at every tear.

The velvet skies reveal no light,
a darkened path portrays his loss.
His heart shall die a torturous death,
as sleepless nights become his cross.

On down of white he rests his head,
to dream the dream in lovers eyes.
When she once filled his empty heart
and life had shown him... no goodbyes.
