She comes back home.
Empty. Bereft. Desolate.
The timid heartbeats still haunt
Her mind, a blank nothingness
She lays awake,
Shedding silent tears
For a part of her, that’s lost, forever
“Forgive me sweetheart, for I cannot”
She says out loud to her empty room.
She will curse life for her cruelty.
Tomorrow, she will be strong again.
But for now, she just lays awake,
Shedding silent tears.
