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

    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. 🤗❤️
