This trial and error

This beautiful pain, has left me needing more

I really wished you hadn't slammed that door behind me,

as I begged on my knees, as I cried for you love again, I begged you please


The shivering feel, shooting down my spine

Withdrawing from your absence, and I am losing my mind

I am so lost, so confused now-a-days,

I am terrified, that you left me this way


That aching pain, that sings inside my soul

That dances do the blues, that stabs and never lets go

What an ache I have, what a pain I will always know

Now I need to cope with this, I need to find a new show


His warm hands, down my sides,

I need to know he cares, but I am still dead inside,

The chilling whispers, I know he cannot love,

I know he can never see, that it is you I dream of


His black eyes, that yearn to absorb my soul,

but it has gone missing, when you left me on the floor

Those overwhelming stares, the threatening voice

I know what I need now, but you were my only choice


I feel this pain, this darkness inside

Trying to cure this illness, to rid of this pain

I need to know if I will ever love again


-Chloe Aldecoa
