Poetry Blogs (abandonment)
It’s a nagging,
A light tug of the sleeve on a cold day,
It reminds you it’s there with
Every quiet evening and cancelled plan
If you close your eyes you can feel
It stronger, engulfing you with its words
And its touch, filling your soul with the
Dirty sludge it flourishes within.
It follows you while you walk from
Street to street, from room to room,

And you let the darkness sink in,
When all you needed was ONE friend,
But time and time, over again,
No one was there for you in...

What was going through your head?
What was running through your mind?
It's the one thing I'll never understand;
How you could just walk away and leave me behind
Didn't leave a trace, no reason to be found.
Just taken away and never reunited.

When you took away from me, everything I had.
I was just a child, I...
