All alone in the moonlight,
I envision your face again tonight.
Images still make me cry.
Feelings consume me, I try to deny.
Day breaks; I try to be free,
but your memory is haunting me.
Oh, there’s nothing I can do,
I only feel emptiness without you.
The last time you made me depart,
you thrust a knife deep inside my heart.
But the pieces will begin to mend,
when someone has another to lend.
Never will you ever find,
someone to treat you so very kind.
Someone to take care of you,
now that you’ve said we’re through.
I hope the emptiness of your frozen heart,
makes you realize you have to make a start,
to sort your feelings out inside,
and get rid of all that false pride.
Think about what I’ve said,
and all my poems you’ve read.
Love is a two way street,
and it doesn’t start with everyone you meet.
