She was once everything

How can I touch her?
For I am not there
How can I show her
Just how much I care?

How can I heal
The wounds that I inflict
The heart I have destroyed
With my selfish mind?

To her, I cannot speak
To her. I am the enemy
To me? She was my faith
To me? She was once everything

Now, alone, we stand  
For pastures new, we head
Without her guiding hand
New ground we both now tread

The reasons?  I’m not sure
But leaving was my way
Just wanted something more
Finding  my own way

We thought we’d last eternal
The two of us entwined
Maybe that’s the reason
I left her far behind

She thinks that I am evil
Selfish through and through
I don’t understand it
But hope one day I do

For now, I’ll stay away
To let my lost love grieve
And let my own heart  cry
Until the day that I know why

    bitter-sweet and I could alomst hear the hauntingness beg for forgiveness... very nice

    question: In the second stanza, the second word, is that suppose to be 'heart'...just curious. I think it was. This is a very good write. Well thought of words.
