Someone has died
Someone has lied to his wife
Someone has lost his job
Someone was killed by the mob
Someone lost his possessions
Someone was killed by his obsessions
Someone has suicided
Someone was misguided
Someone lost his child in a divorce
Someone went off the trekking course
Someone has lost all hope
Someone can’t try to cope
Someone has lost their pride
Someone has lost their bride
Someone has lost their support
Someone innocent has lost in court
Someone has no money to live
Someone has no strength to give
Someone can never see the light
Someone can’t get through the night
Someone is in need
Someone needs to be freed
Someone has gone insane

If only you could see what is in my heart,
maybe then you won’t have torn it apart.
With a resounding echo memories surface from the past,
maybe you and I were never meant to last.
But what of these emotions? Why do they feel so right?
Why must you fill my thoughts every single night?
I try to turn away; I try so hard to hide;
but the further I went away, the more a part of me died.
Now I am without an answer – I have not even a clue,
of what else I can do to stop myself falling again for
I look at my life and connect the dots of pain;
Pain! – You are doomed to haunt me over and over again.
Despair has overtaken me,
Loneliness reigns by royal decree.
I can no longer fight this torment -
Quietly I shall fade away, into nothingness I shall be sent.
