PLEASE SAY IT’S OVER

I’m afraid that I believe,
That I am not the one you need
And I’m afraid I have to say,
It’s time. It’s over.

As you stand before me now
I want to try, but don’t know how
I’m afraid there’s just no way
To stay. It’s over.

How can I look you in the eyes
Watch you grieve, then say goodbye?
When all you’re askings, for the chance
To start all over.

Let me hold you, in my arms
Pretend you’re mine, keep you from harm
It’s not so much to ask of me
To do it over.

So little time, we have to share
They’ll come a time when I’m not there
You’ll have to learn to be alone
Once it’s all over.

Please find the strength to let me go
You know it’s hard, I can’t say no
Don’t spend our lifetime letting go
Please say, it’s over.

REMORSE

No one gets out alive
And that’s a fact
Everyone suffers
No one comes back.

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
No one is immune
Dying’s a must.

Chasing the dollar
Spinning your wheels
Clamoring and climbing
No time to kneel.

Lying and scamming
Taking advantage
Taking from others
Causing such damage.

You will grow old
Good looks will pale
You’ll suffer the pain
When your energy fails.

Money won’t buy
Good health and youth
One of these days
You’ll face the truth.

You are no different
We’re all the same
No one but yourself
For you to blame.

Time will be up
Time to cash out
It’s then that you’ll ask
What your life’s about.

By then it will be
Too late to change course
No time for regrets
Just painful remorse.

DREAM ANGEL

via Daily Prompt: Conveyor

Conveyorg

Close your eyes
As you go to sleep
The conveyor of dreams
Will draw from the deep.

All your desires
Secrets within
Will come all at once
The dreaming begins.

Crystals and gem stones
Appear before you
Whimsical and fanciful
Thier brilliance, their hue.

Falling from heaven
Glitter and gold
She tells you a story
That’s never been told.

Magical fairies
And hobbits appear
All of your fantasies
No reasons to fear.

Unicorns
Gnomes, mermaids and more
Will gather before you
From oceans to shore.

When you awake
And open your eyes
You will remember
And start to cry.

Missing the magic
The fantasies too
Conveyed by the angel
From heaven to you.

LURED

You’re not welcome here
Your account has been depleted
Take your trophies somewhere else
You’re no longer needed.

Sickened by your spectacle
Of smoke and magic mirrors
A fantasy I once believed
A mere pentagram of terrors

Fanciful and unattainable
A secret so well kept
Who could have known
You were laughing, laughing while I slept.

Candle wax is dripping
The wine is being poured
The trap was set so artfully
Who could have known, I could be lured.

I will never be the same
The damage has been done
I am drained and broken
My heart completely numb.

LIVING WITH A PESSIMIST

Living with a pessimist
Isn’t very easy
The sky is always falling
Her world always in pieces.

No matter what the problem
It’s a battle she can’t win
For me an inconvenience
But her walls are caving in.

Everything that happens
Gets blown out of proportion
She over-reacts and comes apart
It’s all a bleak distortion.

Whatever’s about to happen
You can bet it will be bad
No way that it can turn out right
It’s sure to make her sad.

Overwhelmed with deep emotion
Doom and gloom not far from here
Her glass is always empty
And, the end is very near.

No way to try and talk her down
She lives out on the edge
Fearful of the outcome
Of falling off the ledge.

Time wasted in this state of mind
She’s paralyzed and numb.
If only she could see for once
A mere positive outcome.

HEARTACHE

via Daily Prompt: Cavity

Cavity

Well below the margin
Of truth and sanity
Lies an empty space
A deep and dark cavity.

A place where fear resides
Where reason implodes
Where you feel alone
Your secrets exposed.

No cover or shelter
Stripped of your pride
Barren and cold
So shallow inside.

No walls to protect you
No mask to disguise
The weakness and fears
You’ve kept deep inside.

Crying out to be heard
Frightened and scared
No one to protect you
No one really cares.

Left on your own
With promises broken
Echoing words
Unmercifully spoken.

Overcome by heartache
Overwhelmed with sadness
There’s got to be
An end to this madness.

OBSESSION

A slippery slope
I found it to be
No way to stop it
You let go of me.

I went on alone
Fell all the way down
Never came back
Was never found.

Had to start over
All over again
Being without you
Right to the end.

So far above me
So far below
Never enough
Too far to go.

Settling, accepting
My fate predetermined
No looking back
I carry the burden.

Spending a lifetime
Longing and wanting
Blaming myself
Forever pondering.

Grieving the loss
Walking away
Erasing the memory
Getting closer each day.

Pray to stop wanting
Accepting rejection
The truth to be known
It’s just an obsession.
