It's Not Fair

Nobody understands this pain inside. Maybe least of all myself. The day I lost you, I died. 33 yrs up on this shelf. Was young and wild, no bigger fool. Now I am governed by a different rule. Because clouds of someone's misguided youth. Can break your heart when you learn the truth. I believed so long in all the lies. Came to learn I'm not so wise. And that time don't give a damn. Who the hell I think I am. The mirror of age, the faded page. The mellow peace turned into rage. To lose the game that's not a game. Leaves you to never be the same. It leaves you asking why was I born. Surely not to just be forlorn. Feeling like nobody's there. This can't go on, it's not fair.

Your words took stage and treated the reader to a glimpse of your heart and a peek at your soul. It flows like the currents of life with a realistic crispness that drew the reader in. Emile.
