The Sadness and the Cost

A fictional write of deep sorrow and loss. A betrayal that cannot be undone

Another night we sleep apart
an aching in my soul...
We can't keep living life like this
It's all out of control...

We stumble over yesterdays
unable to move on...
Keep fading in and out of love
afraid you'll soon be gone...

I'm terrified of losing you
How do we make this work?... 
We always seem to circle round
the place where demons lurk...

For now we cling to threads of hope
each day I feel the loss...
I can't keep dealing with it all
the sadness and the cost...
