Did You Ever Care

Ever gotten that feeling where you wanted to die?

Felt like nothing was left of you,

And you just wanted to say goodbye?

Tired of the sorrows that reign in your heart too?

Thought about the blade in all of its shine

And the regrets that buried in time?

What happens when all you have is hope,

But that leaves you too. How can you cope?

Do you begin again,

Or do you put it to a final end?

What happens when all apologies have left your heart?

How could you ever forget that feeling, so tart?

Resolutions seem too far past

To reconcile the love that was meant to last.

Maybe hope is too much to ask for

Even for the love that we promised to adore.

I too have felt this way. Its part of being alive and living is allwe know how to do sometimes when everything in the world we once have known has come crashing down around our feet.  But.....sometimes its the absence of those things that define us as who and what we really are. the lifting of the veil.    Excellent evocation of the despair one feels when swimming the sea  heart- broken-ness. Well done
