Love Torn

Written by: James Nichols

For those unfulfilled...


Faint light's illumination.
On my mind, a rumination.

I want you still.
Don't you feel
the same?

I've seen a perfect world
between this boy and girl

where there aren't tears
and hearts don't fear
the pain.

Yet in reality,
set in formality

the lines are read
"I'm fine," you said,
by phone.

just know one little thing:
a lonely soul may sometimes bring

heartache enough for two,
yet awake I"ll call to you,
alone.
