How Could I Ever Leave You ( Collab)

by Cindy

Sitting alone in this midnight train
Traveling in my daily nightmares
Looking out the bleeding window
Haunting memories pasted in layers

All these years spent loving only you
Can't believe you walked out the door
Visions of you with her, burnt in my mind
Turning away, me crumpled on the floor

Being pushed from this cloud of love
When I close my eyes,hit the ground
Though I keep falling faster than time
Still crash to memories without sound

Would have given up my life for you
You vowed that you would never leave
Yet here I am so cold and alone
Your words of love I always believed

No faith in God no trust in Love
Still breathing as life has just begun
Unleash sadness from my black heart
Or am I past the point of no return

Please come back to me my love
Can't live on memories of yesterdays
Needing your love back in my heart
Praying you'll come back to stay

Tired of drowning in my own tears
Pictures of your face fading away
Hope to come out of this midnight train
With your hands in mine someday


Waiting for you with open arms
How could I ever leave you
Always needed you here with me
To our love I'll always be true

Wow Cindy, what a heartfelt write. When I read your work on here I am always amazed by the pure beauty you portray with your vivid imagery. I loved your choice of words and the overall flow as well.

However; I would've liked to see some punctuation within this piece. Punctuation is very important in poetry, it lets the reader know when to pause or stop as well as adding to the overall flow of the piece.

Overall an emotion filled piece which was well written. Keep up the fantastic work!

Peace, Joe

Very moving to read this, Cindy!!!! Can sense the emotional devastation that the subject of this poem feels, being left by the wayside. This vulnerability and emotion expressed here is sadly beautiful.
5/5
