I Walk Alone on the Boulevard of Broken Dreams

by bye2mrwrong

Sometimes when I’m alone, in the dead of the night, I can feel the pain creep in and remind me; physically hurting me, tormenting me, playing its cruel little game with my heart only to crucify me once more. But it seems that sometimes in order to learn we need to make mistakes, and repeat them; until we can truly learn to walk alone without faltering.

I do not want to pick up the broken pieces by myself. I do not want to continue on the road alone. But life doesn’t always give us a choice. Sometimes we are dealt a raw hand. And sometimes “God allows us to feel empty so that we hunger for a greater love”. Until that greater love comes I walk alone.

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk alone

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow hearts the only thing that’s beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there would find me
‘Til then I walk alone.
