A Loveless Day
(That Will Never Fade)

This same old dream that I so loath
A vision of a dull world shrouded in gray

As I walk down a never ending road
The colorlessness in everything never seems to decay

In slow motion I suffer alone
Under the  liquid-silver droplets of rain

-
You had no idea how strong my love was
You played a part in the pain that was dealt and done

You didn't experience the ocean of tears that I had to swim through
You didn't see the countless days I had to endure without being around you

You never felt the sickness within the soul that I had kept
You never knew of the quakes in my heart that you had fed

For you I had damaged myself
For you I put myself through hell

But I swear it was worth it
Because now I know how hard life can get

I want you to realize that you aren't a loss
For you will always be known as my first love

-
This same old reality that I can't let go
A nightmare of a person who is so far away

As I try to run from the world that I don't want to know
I'm still locked within my own unbearable heartache

Even though you left a long time ago
I'm still living in a loveless day that will never fade


"I woke up today already knowing that I've seen better days."
Ten years later, I couldn't wait anymore.
Ten failed confessions later, I finally let it all go.

Heh
Well I'm happy you enjoyed this particular one. It's an old favorite. You actually might be happy to know that I have written a sequel to this one. It's called "A Sleepless Night" and you can read it here ---> fav.me/d5b463l

As you will see, they are very similar and follow the same style and behind the scenes aspects of the words behind the words.

They are..and that will never change..I carry mine in my heart
still! Even though it was short and I did marry..the love of another is a joyous thing and when it ends..you think that there will never be another..I still dream about him..yes..sweet sorrow!

Ahhh yes. I really wished that first loves weren't the same for everyone....But I guess it's hard to break that powerful cycle. It seems like a life-lesson we all seem to go through at some point in our lives. </3 and <3
Thank you for your insight. :)

It makes me sad, but somehow it's comforting as well...
it's hard to let go
