No one knows why he stands there
No one knows there’s a chain of loss
Keeping him from moving away from that black cloud
He lowers his head every now and then
And remembers how his mother would always tell him
To keep his chin up
Time flies so fast when everything
Has been thrown so violently to the ground
Sinking below
He remembers his father’s words
How he promised him he’d never be alone
Or forgotten
But the only one beside him is a shadowy build up of despair
One thing no one will ever know is the pain he bleeds inside
The pain from the memory of her last words
“I love you always and forever”
Who knows how much longer he’ll be able to stand
When a lonely soul will surely collapse
Love is dead

    General Commenta guy thathas always been told things were going to be ok, things were goign to get better, such and such, and everyone ended up not being there for him. alone he lost all he had and cant even talk. it is a smart thing to understand and know about the bad things in life, hope is important, but so is an understanding of the bad things in life.
