520 Condemned [08 November 2002]

condemned to a life of loneliness
how does one keep going?
there is a breach in my heart
that can never be filled
none have ever presented themselves
with the right fix for it
and none ever will
standing upon a small, crumbling ledge
waiting, hoping
to be rescued
saved from a lifetime of sorrow
of hunger with an unfulfilled heart
only to die holding on
to nothing
the promise of love never kept
so lost to that dream
of a fulfilled life
with happiness and desire abundant
but there is no way
to reach that from here
no bridge to close the gap
no silver wings to fly there
I am the condemned
I cannot fathom life
nor can I see the path
