Leaves on road all scattered

I was going all alone
carrying all the burden on my soul
those harsh words & bitter tones
memories which have been torn
feelings that have flown
reality is I’m all alone
no one there to take me home
no answers, no replies, the cold telephone
sadness is what I know since the day I was born
who cares for me, who needs me
sometimes the truth is too blinding to see
when you are as lonely as an autumn tree
like million others, I would also disappear
my words that you never wanted to hear
it keeps hurting me like a spear
distant and apart even when apparently near
the trust has always been shattered
and the feelings like leaves on road all scattered

I don’t know about my destination
loving you has gifted me isolation
heading blindly to desolation
bearing consequences of a failed resolution
but for no one and none it would ever matter
its only my old soul battered
you seem to live a happy life
yet for me there seems bleak hope to survive
its cold and I stand alone
too many years gone leaving me so old
don’t need new reason to mourn
all the youth and energies have flown
it keeps hurting me like a spear
distant and apart even when apparently near
the trust has always been shattered
and the feelings like leaves on road all scattered
