Before You

By Cole Davis

First came loneliness

loss consuming me

Bringing the worst out

Hurting the ones I loved


Withdrawing from life itself

My world became darkness

Void of all emotion

Being dragged down by self-pity

Deeper and deeper

Till I was truly alone


Then you appeared

Bring life to a once broken heart

Giving a reason to love again

The person who wouldn’t say no

That will always be there

Who gave color to my world

The one who has left their mark

In my life and in my heart
