On the edge of darkness
On the edge of death
Feeling only emptiness
Having nothing left
The pain, the loss
The hurting, the crying
The screams, the tears
The hopeless trying
Failure, defeat
Pain and strife
Living without loving
No point to life
Beautiful, gorgeous
Kind and sweet
That special someone
You've longed to meet
Holding hands
Giving hugs
Kissing leads to liking
Liking leads to love
Kindness, Honesty
Cruelty, lying
Cheating, hurting
Thoughts of dying
The pain, the loss
The hurting, the crying
The screams, the tears
The hopeless trying
Liking again
Was the biggest mistake
Because liking leads to loving
And loving leads to heartbreak

good writing
J. C. this is a good piece. I encourage you to keep submitting, writing and responding here. This is a good place to share.
This was written after a long abusive relationship, wasn't it?

Yes Dareva, thanks for your encouragement.
This piece was written when I was much younger about 8 years ago I was in a very long abusive relationship, was left feeling why love somebody and give your all. At that time I believed love was hopeless especially when you give somebody 5yrs of your life to have them leave you almost empty inside ( a lost soul). I AM A SURVIVOR!!!
