Happily Never After

A personal experience of a time when I had my heart broken and was left unsure of what step to take next...having to find myself.

Here Tomorrow....Gone Today

Today I poured my heart out to you.
I shared my innermost desires,
my wants, my needs
Yesterday what I wanted,
what I needed,
was you.
Yet today I realized I can't fulfill those wants and needs,
I can't fulfill them because the bottom line is
I can't have you.
Yesterday was simple.
Today seems so complicated and unclear.
Before today, tomorrow was in focus.
Tomorrow was a promise waiting to be fulfilled.
But today you came and took my security away.
Today I realized how little assurance we have in life.
For awhile I had a hope to look forward to
and now
I have to find a new hope.
Now I have to figure out who I can be.
But can someone please tell me who I am
without someone to love me?
How can I feel real when tomorrow's just a fantasy?


Fantasy, Here And Gone, Tomorrow, Transient
