Desperate Longing

1 min read

For so long you have been gone
Keeping me awake until dawn
Tightening my face with sorrow
Dispelling my better tomorrow
Increasing my wavering insanity
So far gone is the serenity

Memories still parade through my mind
Yet another love I can’t find
And I can hardly move
As if I am in a groove
For the loneliness has swelled into a pain
Only with you along, I can’t complain.
