what will happen when im gone?

here we go again
these nights they bring me pain
wish someone was here just to keep me sane

reactions have started to tear at my soul,
bringing out wounds you were never meant to know

and when my world has shattered,
everyone will wonder why,
i'll answer and i may smile and sigh....
no one else thought i mattered.

family may cr...y,
friends may be sad,
but when it comes to love,
no one will stand by.

    its not necessarily a view of love in general. its a view of my life as it is right now. no one loves me in the way that i want. that last paragraph means that while my friends and family will miss me, i don't have a lover to mourn my passing
