The Cost

Words left unspoken
Thoughts never shared
Love never given
Hearts never bared
Hurt not softly soothed
Life like a cell
Hate freely given
Tears never fell
Eyes lacking for sight
Regret not felt
Emptiness so cold
Knees never knelt
Heartaches delivered
Memories lost
Dreams left in ashes
Lives are the cost
