Loss

Another creative writing assignment

I breathe in dry murky air
I breathe in dry murky air
The building as grey, as the clouds above
The building as grey, as the clouds above

He left me a year after she left
Today as dim as the day we found out

I found my first love in my years of solitude
I found my first love in my years of solitude
My second love, in the stress of adulthood
My second love, in the stress of adulthood
She left when my temptation was tested and i failed
He left when my temptation broke him

Me, the broken man in a grey world
Me, the broken man in a grey world
Is alone after 35 years
Is alone after 35 years
My loves went to fight my temptations
I stayed home, stayed weak

This building is all I have left
This building is all I have left
Here, I can fight my temptations
Here, I can fight my temptations
I can fight like he did, save myself
I will learn how to deal with being alone
