Lonely man Pictures, Images and Photos

   Vestiges of a life I dreamed,
   one that we both seemed to want,
   come back to haunt me

   disconnecting from the here and now
   stepping back into that place
   I thought I released

   is brutal…

   but she told me you spoke my name
   you shared my heart with her
   and suddenly here you are again

   It hurts more knowing
   that you didn't just forget me…
   even though it's the very thing
   I prayed you'd never be able to do
   when you said goodbye
   for the last time

   you chose…

   But you really didn't, did you?
   You still longed for the very thing
   I offered you so openly

   love, without rules
   without judgment
   acceptance of
   who you are

   now, yet another shares in the
   hurt I've suffered because
   you deceived once more
   needed, once more

   you've made your bed…

   but she and I are the ones
   who have to lay in
   love's aftermath
   without you

   yes, the pain remains
   it's still so cold here
   but at least our lives are
   not as barren of love

   as yours will forever be…
