You Didn’t Come Back

I started working on this almost two months ago.  I think I was in a different (not so good) place but those are true emotions too I guess.

When the pain seared my soul
You didn’t come back
When I collapsed exhausted each night
You didn’t come back
When I struggled to rise in the morning
You didn’t come back
When I could think of nothing but you
You didn’t come back

As I searched for new answers
You didn’t come back
When I slipped on my old mask
You didn’t come back
When sadness overtook me
You didn’t come back
When I lost track of myself
You didn’t come back

When beauty brought tears to my eyes
You didn’t come back
When I started to see a path ahead
You didn’t come back
When I chose to smile and laugh
You didn’t come back
As time and life marched on
You didn’t come back

Deep in my secret heart I wish, still
You don’t come back
Many nights even now I imagine miracles, but
You don’t come back
my mind tells me it will never be
You don’t come back
Accepting this truth is the hardest of things
You won’t ever be coming back
