Lonely I Live, Lonely I Die

bytheoncomingstorm©

I've learned to be lonely

Embraced my dark side

Gave up on my one and only

Just so I could hide

Lived in a house of my fears

Haunted by my dreams

Drowing in my tears

As the pain rips at my seams

I've passed up all the joy

It felt like a sick joke

Happiness seemed like a ploy

When terror was there when I woke

I'm afraid that this moment with you

It cannot last

You are too good to be true

You'will shatter me like glass

I'm putting up the walls

I'm protecting my heart

I don't want to get hurt when I fall

When heartache was in the cards from the start

I'm pushing you away now

Before I get hurt again

Heartache isn't something I'm going to allow

So I'm not letting you in

I'll live my life lonely as lonely can be

Lost in my darkness struggling to get free

No one to blame for my saddness but me

Because in life there is only one guarentee

I'll fall for you

Hard and fast

Yes its true

And in the end I know... it cannot last

Because you are like water, healing to my soul

And I am like fire, blazing blue

I'll burn you whole

And I can't live with me hurting you

Ending it now before it's too late

Saying our tearful goodbye

Loneliness is my one true fate

Lonely I live, lonely I die

Really excellent

This has something strong to say. It has rhythm that is jagged, fitting the theme. There is subtlety and development of a good story line.

Poems on this general topic all too often fall into self pitymore...
