NIGHTMARES FROM AN UNBLEACHED SOUL

CONFLICTED HOME

My sweetheart told me

She didn’t  love me, anymore

My sweetheart told me

There’s no love left to secure

It came like a speeding bullet

Erased my heart to its very core

 

She was the love of my life

But she doesn’t love me one whit

With her, I felt at Home, at peace

But that wrecking ball really hit.

If I can’t be with my Home

 

Life doesn’t seem worth a bit.

 

My sweetheart told me

She didn’t love me, anymore

My sweetheart told me

There’s no love left to secure

It came like a speeding bullet

Erased my heart to its very core

 

Pathetic; as my mind won’t let her go

She was Home to me

I feel so out of place

 

What was left of my heart,

Icy winds violently blow

I’m in a lifeless spin

Sorta out of control

Getting tossed away

Leaves me bleeding on a dusty knoll

 

There’s emptiness hanging in me

Sometimes can’t feel at all; not at all

That emptiness is overpowering

Sometimes I can’t get off the floor

Not at all

You can hear my wailing

With lips shut closed.

 

My sweetheart told me

She didn’t love me, anymore

My sweetheart told me

There’s no love left to secure

It came like a speeding bullet

Erased my heart to its very core

There’s nothing any more

 

Please, don’t shut the door

There’s nothing any more

Please, don’t shut the door

Please, don’t shut the door

Pleeeaasssse, don’t

Pleassssse, don’t

Please

Don’t

Don’t

Don’t

    • Hey Varad. Funny thing is, I was creating blues music In my head while I was writing this, but a soupcon of Damian Rice and a smattering of Leonard Cohen. I’ll have to sing this to myself in a country style. Thanks

  1. Such a sorrowful piece that anyone who has ever loved-and-lost can relate to. The words are frothy with your emotions. Well done. Small thought: consider using “shredded” instead of “erased”, as that’s what speeding bullets do.
