Alone with the Moon

I remember when I first met you, love.
You filled my ears with the sweetest lies.
It was during that time when
I Cared about nothing else but you
I don't even know if you felt that way too.

I trusted. I couldn't let go.
My feelings were true.
Yes, I loved without expecting for anything.
I was alone when that world crumbled.

Though I knew we eventually had to end
I kept hoping that I'd be able to save
Even just mere fragments of what we built

We could have survived in those ruins
If only it wasn't just me who tried to thrive
And be contented with what we once had
And whatever was left after the war

The ghost of our love's past
Now haunts every corridor of what I have
Constructed over where I was left to die

I was left in the cold with the moon
Until I agreed to follow its light
Into this then unknown world

I have moved on but I have memories.
A curse. I'll never be able to forget.
Again, I've forgiven.
I wish for all this to be left forgotten.

How will you never cross my mind again?
The wound has healed but I still feel the pain
Whenever I'm in need of a friend
I still love how we used to be.

    Jake This is a roller coaster of emotion that takes the reader on a journey of love, loss, devotion, and heartache. Nice job
