Alone

Shawn Mason

He stares in her eyes,
His soul is tortured.
She brings him happiness,
His life full of torment.
Her voice keeps him sane,
The distance he can't stand.
He sells all to be with her,
When he reaches her she's gone.
Reaching her at last,
He knows she's going to leave.
They fall into each others arms,
Waiting for the moment to be torn apart.
His arms are full of heaven,
His heart is full of hell.
He closes his eyes to capture the moment.
When he opens them...he's alone.
