    Shattered dreams embrace me like a stiff wool blanket
    My soul begs and pleads for the comfort it hungrily craves
    Alone once again, stunned from another departure
    Disillusionment crashes down upon my being like cold fierce waves

    Embarassment lies at my bedside, greeting me each day I wake
    Tauntingly reminding me I shared my innermost thoughts and desires
    Trusting you in a space guarded well by repetitive experience
    The fool has returned to shadow my face into nonexistence

    Flashbacks shock my heart, trying to rescusitate a fading beat
    The voice of promise flowing like tears sincerely through your eyes
    Our verbalized plans now like fragments of dust circling the air
    Caught in another whirlwind, damaged and left behind from the storm

    Quesstions viciously bombarding every crevice of my mind
    How much of this was real and what was illusion to my eyes?
    Where was the gatekeeper of experience lounging this time?
    Allowing another theft of enormous proportion...nonreplaceable

    Long lost but not forgotten faces approach me once more
    Hello Pain, Anger, Confusion..how well do I remember
    Where is Strength, Determination and Pride?...Late as usual
    I see Numbness has settled in its familiar dwelling

    Excuse me while I change.....into the person I was before I met you.

    To think that you gave yourself to someone who does not cherish it makes one feel that there's an enemy out there carrying around a precious secret. Your words were so full that they carpeted the page. Awesome...

    Whoah, I'm nearly speechless..

    It's been a long while since I've been absorbed like that into a piece, Wisdom7. I almost cried. Deeply felt. I can relate only too well. You definitely have this craft mastered.
