why am I still holding on
when I know you’re forever gone?
I wish you were coming back
but shining light has turned to black
I’ve spent too long on this aimless train
time for me to accept the pain

but I cannot decide
if I would rather hide
watching you just to be near
or close my eyes and disappear

it hurts my heart to let you go
so I stay alone in your shadow
buried in my hopeless dreams
quiet outside while my inside screams
remembering what we used to be
wishing again to be you and me

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
