A Poem of Lament

I want to heal, I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I felt so long
(erase all the pain til it's gone)
I want to heal, I want to feel,
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something
I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong
(Somewhere I Belong -- partial lyrics, by Linkin Park)
_ _ _ _ _

For that one and the music playlist by Sanaa at toads:

When There's Nowhere

What will I do
Where will I go
When will I know

Somewhere I belong
even though you've gone

My life is empty without you
I miss your touch and your feel
still I know
Somewhere I belong

Now that you're gone
and I've nothing left to own
nothing left of my feelings
feelings I had for you

But you're not here
and all I have to own

is in this little bottle
I'm taking contents now

And when I awake
there'll be another take
I don't know where it'll be
for sure you won't be

Goodbye now this world
Still even though I won't be
My remains here will be
but I will myself no longer be

You can cry for me now
I'm crying no more

Somewhere I belong
I'm finding it now
but not here ever more

'somewhere I belong even though you've gone' ~~ time for our dance.

A poem of suicide, kinda disturbing — unless Imam reading this wrong? Which I certainly hope I am.

a lament of such sadness! A poem of fiction, (for you) I certainly hope! but true for so many...

This is so true of the many around us. You described the pain of loss vividly.

So much grief...I wish whoever feels so be blessed with loving friends.

You make us see someone's despair so clearly. So sad to have no hope at all. I know this is fiction. You have written it well.
