Lyrics For Walking Away

We started out so delicious

And then you turned vicious

What was on your mind that day

We made love and shared love

And all was good

Then you laughed and just walked away


I followed your footprints

To see where you’d gone

Hearing the music, still

Hearing your song

But you just laughed

You laughed and walked away


Why would you hurt me

When you had your choice of so many

And I didn’t even know how to play

Never have hurt so much

never had warning

there were those

Who would just laugh and walk away


Your heart must be empty

Your soul a vacant place

where nothing matters at all

you leave with a smile on your face

Not even a backward glance

not wanting a second chance

not needing anything more


Your presence was so strong

and though I was proven wrong

never guessing that you wouldn’t stay

or that you would laugh ...

cutting even deeper ...

laugh and just walk away

Oh my dear, the pain is just dripping from the lyrics. Love is so hard at times, isn't it? To be laughed at is one of the most painful things, especially when we have trusted and loved someone who now treats us with such disrespect and coldness. OUCH! Brings me back to some old boes.

Thanks so much to both of you. I need the music and have no one to hook up with to bring it to a song that I have in my head and zero musical talent. It's crude, would need work but sounds better when it's sung. You'll just have to trust me...lol

Great lyrics and a cold empty person of whom it's best to be rid.

I have walked the streets of shame and rejection. I loved with intensity and my heart was broken on several occasions throughout my life. I always emerged stronger and moved forward finding LOVE again and again.

Now my tired soul is dormant and I rest awhile, lingering in the melancholy moments and remembering my youth and wind on my face and the scent of that woman, that one that would leave me speechless and forever full. I felt your pain. Hugs

Your words scream to the soul, are heard by the heart and are caressed by the pulse. For any one to not see what I see and not hear what I hear, surely is both blind and deaf.

My dear Q. Between you and saddlerider you two have written far more an eloquent hub than my childish lyrics. You each are great writers, while I write with a child's crayons.

Ah, Epi, I'd never walk away from you, but you do make me laugh ... and cry sometimes too.

I have missed you Dear Lady and your words. I don't have as much time as I used to, since returning back to school, but I had to come and read words that soothe my soul, that are familiar and once again I have found my way to your wonderful words scribed upon these pages. Not that the meanings are wonderful, it is never wonderful to be hurt and feeling that way. But you are a gifted Lady and I loved this poem of your pain put out there to offer for us to read.

Beautiful in its own haunting way.

*hugs*

I am fine, pain lets you know you are alive. I hurt more today thinking my cat had Leukemia than I did over this ... this was an old pain. My cat, by the way Praise God has a serious infection but not Leukemia at all and should recover if we caught the infection in time.

You are back in school? That is wonderful! I have missed you on FB and around here. I am so happy for you!

Lovely sentiments Poogranma, we have all had that happen to us in the past, not a nice feeling of being used and left at all.

thebluestar and LVidoni5 - I am so very sorry I missed your comments. There have been times when I have not received notices of comments or other writers new hubs. I do thank you so very much for taking the time to read my lyrics and for your kind comments!

Victoria Lynn - we share a middle name and other things ... lol. My thanks for your generous comments. This just kind of tumbled out of me one day all in one fell swoop. I don't know why to this day because, to my knowledge at least, no one has ever laughed at me but there sure has been a lot of leaving going on! I must have been feeling deserted that day.
