Let This Happen

This path is traveled

sometimes alone
fading feelings
sometimes return
sometimes recommit
the oaths that you broke

Spread too thin
gotta cut back
gotta reprogram
your heart to focus
on what it lacks

Would you forgive me completely?
would you love me despite ME?
would you spend your life?
end your life?

with me
together till it's over

I call out in the darkness
to the unattainable answer
and long only for your hand
to run through my hair
as you tell me it'll be alright

I haven't lost hope
in forever

I'm so alone
tears form but can't flow
the well's run too dry
to ask you tonight
to give me
every last thing
that's restraining...
the constant draining
of life from our eyes
and let it all go

Slowly, the tide falls
on the shores of my mind
washing away what's left
until I'm blank and free
flying higher
than the hopes of the birds
and sinking lower
than the depths of the sea

Wrestling with words and wrestling with emotions.... every poet struggles with these sentiments. Lovely poetry, Ben.

What the hell has happened to you man? I haven't done much on HP myself, but I really miss you... as does everyone who loves a class act.

And that describes you so well.
