Updated on August 10, 2013

Some things are best left unsaid.

It was never my decision

I did not come out of the woods by choice

How I wish I could surrender what isn’t mine

For I have seen the lies that burns within my needing

I have seen peace and known pain

Seen the birth of a son

And lived to see a lover’s final breath

With the silent sound of loneliness

Following me to my bed

As empty glasses and echoes fill my room

I am a writer without any words

A story nobody has ever heard

So seal my cold heart, for its heavy

This dusty sterile land has given all it could yield

And now I have nowhere else to lay my heart

Align my heart, my mind, my body

For I have nowhere to stand, nowhere to hide

A voice without any sound

A treasure map still undiscovered

Left starring at tears on a white blank page

Of letters that I could not have written.

I guess, it’s time I run far way

To a place where love don’t cost a thing

A place where I’d find comfort in my pain

I pray, you all never feel this kind of remorse.

By Richie
