    At a lost
    Expressed in my breath
    Short it seems to me
    Each moment
    As its worth
    Without you
    That’s little consolation you see
    For without you
    There is no me
    An empty shell
    An echo of what use to be
    My tormented soul
    That cries out for you
    Fills my head with
    Optical illusions of you
    could I ever shake this?
    Start all over and remake this
    Happiness is incomplete
    Laughter is void of sound
    I now understand what Smokey said..
    For these are the tears of a clown

    From each ripplett of tear
    stand a void of love leakin
    yet to revisit but togetherness
    rejoice a new
    yes tears of a clown can be seen

    This was a great write well felt

    Thank you Rich, I love how you reciprocate this flow. These are indeed the tears of a clown....when there is no one around

    From each ripplett of tear
    stand a void of love leakin
    yet to revisit but togetherness
    rejoice a new
    yes tears of a clown can be seen

    Today was like no other
    for today I experienced
    my first good cry
    Not out of pain or sorrow
    but silently
    my soul empties out
    and a sigh of relief
    I'm looking for you
    melting like an ice cube
    without you
    I have accepted my fate
    yes I have
    no more time to wrestle myself
    in the lost of you
    found my pride today
    love
    some how prompted me
    to throw it away

    Welcome to Destee :spinstar:LadyBelle:spinstar:

    I enjoyed reading this flow

    Sometimes it hurts
    Sometimes the pain feels good
    Most of the time it leaves you empty

    Feeling :confused:
    Feeling like :kick: abused
    Feeling like :insane:
    But like you said shedding many :SuN015: tears

    One who gives love isn't the fool
    The One who lost or refuses love is
