When Your Heart Is Ripped Away

There are moments in life where suddenly you stand so lonely and alone
Isolated from the movement of the world
And stranded as if no one is there who cares

You try to pretend that this is only a dream
But you continue to wake up and realize that reality is what it is
And the tears begin again

You long for just a moment of memories
To shatter the fear and frustration
But the memories are only shared by one

You wander through the routines of work and living
The daily chores of keeping things as they were
But the things that were are not

They changed in one swift moment
Changed in one collection of words
And changed everything forever

I long for a life where everything is predictable
Where everything is flowers
And the scents of spring are all around

But that is but an illusion of life
An “Unreality” of the ways things must be
And the way things are

And it’s so lonely to be me
