When You Were Here

I loved you true
to and from and through
the essence of all that I am
and I simply cannot understand
why you have gone away.

The days and nights seem empty
since you ran away,
back to that life you always said
you knew to be untrue;
yet it seems you do not care
what all your choices do to me.

For my world has fallen all apart
as all the love we shared keeps
shattering within this windblown heart
and starlight streams unendingly
right through the ghosts of all
you left unsaid and thus undone.

Iíve searched in spaces most despise
to try to find the reason why,
or what I might have done
to make it so.
Yet all I know still tells me,
simply that it wasnít me
that broke it all apart.

I look to you, sometimes
for the reasoning
behind your actions,
but every time I do
you turn your back
and walk away again,
a look of guilt and shame
upon that face that angels graced
when you were here with me...
