Well it's been a while. Some brilliant work here and now for mine though it isn't one of my best.
Free At Last
I felt a cold and empty feeling.
As if it was my life, not his, taken.
I did not weep for it was hard to bear,
I tried to forget or at least to ignore.
You had left me alone to struggle.
I felt only sorrow; nothing would fade,
Your presence still there, ever haunting,
Driving me to insanity, showing no mercy.
I tried to fight it, to keep my senses
But there was just too much that time wouldn’t take.
For you had left me, forever gone,
Taking alongside you my sense of mind and state.
You left nothing of me,
Had broken me whole.
No-one could help me,
No-one but you.
I decided that I had had enough-
That this life was not for me
And so I left it, let death consume me,
And finally felt eternal peace.
Now no more do I need you
For I have my own gentle peace.
I am at rest with no-one to disturb me,
With no-one to hurt me nor to harm me.
For now I am nothing but a soul,
A soul alone who needs no-one….
The flame burns gently against the wick,
Dancing and eating away at it.
It is full of life and of joy
Yet it has no heart of its own.
As its heat radiates away
It starts to fade.
To fade till finally,
The light goes out…..
