nothing learned

alone and depressed
as i sit and assess
this doomed situation
between you and i

why do i prolong
the pain inside
this situation is not new to me
yet from the past
no lesson was learned
and once again this feeling
has returned.

give me back my lonely days
when my emotions did not
travel through an unknown haze
feelings weren’t that of happiness
but i know now
that i don’t miss
my heart descending to this abyss
