still alone.

I started alone
looking for answers
hoping for a love
to break the cycle
to bring my heart
out of darkness
into joyful light

when I found you
I thought my search
had finally ended
but in the stark
morning sunshine
I saw you for
what you truly were

a dream
a figment of my
a love that would
never be real
a hopeful feeling
that would only die

I should have known
how this would end
found no answers
lost hope for love
caught in the cycle
I started alone
I ended alone

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.

    Beautifully crafted. And so relatable. Often times we don’t see people for who they are but who we want them to be in our idol version of them. 📝♥

    Ah but we never know how things will end when we start down a path. And hope springs eternal (mostly). Very sad but beautifully written, Sass. That is your new nickname. You’re welcome. 🤗❤️
