How Do I Heal – The Mush from the Hill

All I ever wanted

Was to make you proud

Do the right thing

And show you the best of me


Only ever wanting your love

Always hoping for a smile

The touch of your hand

The caress or your arms


But you only watched

For my failings

You only showed me

Your contempt


What was I to you?

Who was I?

After so long

Where did I go wrong?


Now you’re gone

And I’m nothing

Left with only my shadow

Left a nobody


How do I heal from this?

Trying without success

What seemed to be right, gone!

As quickly as the door shutting


Still I try


Still I hope

Losing faith


How do I heal?
