poem about lost love and the anger, fear and resentment it can sometimes have affect us
She's the girl...
I left behind...
The girl inside...
Who blew your mind...

The girl without...
A care or thought...
The girl who left...
With a broken heart...

She's grown older...
He's grown cold...
Their life together...
Remains untold...

Their dreams and passions...
Exist in time...
Forgotten feelings...
She longs to find...

Extinguished fire...
From a lover's flame...
With charcoal ashes...
Now who's to blame...?

Love had scared her...
So she ran away...
But, dying inside her...
Was a longing to stay...

Love's what she wanted...
But, love doesn't last...
Because love is a shadow...
That dwells in the past...
