8-15-2012 Hotel 11

I've sat alone
For hours or days?
I do not know
Who goes or stays.
I've paid no mind
To the lost souls.
Strangely I've heard it all
Though no one surely knows.

I've been watching the streets
Watching the dying crowd.
I wish I'd joined
Yet I'll watch from my cloud.
The sun sets
While darkness closes in.
Another day passed
Again the night will win.

The night flickers
As she walks by.
How could I have missed
This woman so coy and shy?
I'm captivated
Those eyes a wonder.
Forever I've waited
To catch looks of splendor.

The lights die
As he skulks by.
I watch his face
Contort with confusion.
His thoughts poison
Venom without a reason. 
His hands flashed
His scowl gone.
Steps quicken
As he ran on.

My angel
Fallen below.
I've watched her fall
I'm the only one who will know!
I've watched her pain
In the quick flash of steel.
A heartless thought
Causing a hate so real.

I cannot escape
I cannot rescue her.
The broken thoughts
Kill all that was sure.
I'm stuck here
Away from the scene.
Every single fear
Chasing the horrors between.

I've been locked away for years
I've been dying forever.
I remember her screams
I remember the nights saviour.

It was I that night
Locked away from the world.
It was my fault
As I watched the dying girl.
It was my faith
That let her die.
The scowling wraith
Bled her dry.

No reason
Has ever been told.
No reason
For me to grow old.
I fell in love with the chase
And not the mystery.
Who erased her face
Who sent me into misery?

I'll find you
I'll kill you.
I'll meet you
I'll save you.
Someone had to die
By my hand.
She'll no longer cry
For its not as I planned.

Show me where the heart is.
I've travelled from the start.
I'm almost done.
I'm almost...

Thank you. I'm overjoyed that you appreciate my poem. I'm starting to write again, and I'm glad I can still relate to people after all I've been through. However tomorrow is another day and we must look on while making the past into a piece of art.
