                hand side border


I stand alone on the edge of despair
My heart broken beyond repair
I am less than human
Less than whole
A great deal less than worthy

My heart aches with a pain so deep
It matches the velvety night
Yet there are no twinkling lights left with in me
The spark is
Forever gone

The once bright flame of my soul
Extinguished
Once so full of life
An abyssal chasm now exists
And I am dead inside

Apathy rules
For there is no reason to care
For once where I loved and lived
I am left with a heart broken beyond repair
As alone I stand on the edge of despair
