    POETICALLY SPEAKING​
    once upon a time over the moon though the clouds
    where true loves lives rivers stream pure love..
    I can see the sun rises but I see nothing in between
    when I awake there's no love
    the stars don't sparkle no more
    the secrets thoughts of you an I have disappeared
    my life is empty and the truth has gone
    forever is gone....the pain runs deep
    I am still a Queen but no longer have a King
    no more thoughts of love....
    no more of a vision of happiness just a dark cloud
    looms for this rose don't bloom no more...
    the hurt and pain has gone just the numbness
    for when the rain falls its the tears of an angel
    with a broken hurt not a heart that will never love another...
    may sound strange...but I gave my all way to long
    now I sit here wondering why...

    "forever" was a long time this year...

    from all things come growth...even painful things. Your journey continues...

    You're welcome!

    It sounded like you had the blues...
