Broken, Lost

I’m sorry for everything I said
everything I did
every thought I had
every word I spoke
I wish I was heartless
I wish I was cold
someday my story will be told
the story of the broken soul
the soul that turned from stone to sweet water
from water to flame
from flame to nothing but ashes…
and to the ground I will return
for I only belong to the dead
but even there I would be kicked out…
the dead never cried…
Romeo and Juliet were flies
but my story made them sob…
for the love that I have has no words
no limits… no place in this world
I am kicked out of the universe
and was sent to the nothingness
To the emptiness… to the darkness…
to where I will sit alone…
to where I belong…
