Ashes on the Wind

It hurts-
oh god- it hurts
to see what
I can never have
they fall in love
they marry
maybe they only date
but it hurts me
more than I want
to not feel
to give
and never receive
you who do not understand
have no solution
so spare me
the false hopes
for tomorrows
that never come
a torture
I can face no longer
if giving up
is what must be done
then so be it!
take my dreams
let them burn
scatter the ashes
on the winds
releasing me
from obligation
