Searching For Oblivion

You're crying, curled up in bed in a fetal position. And bullied by doubts and fears you feel completely alone. Unable to numb the hurt, bitter tears flow from your eyes. For it is unbearable when dreams start falling apart. Life feels more like a sentence, punishing you for mistakes. But what sin did you commit that love would abandon you? Your pillow preserves his smell, clinging onto memories. But his picture on the wall looks awkward and out of place. Love’s absence fuels anguish; you do not know what to do. And start rocking back and forth, searching for oblivion.
