depressing poem about a faltering faith 

Where did you go?

I was told to follow, and so I followed,
But now it seems that I'm all alone.

Our footsteps have been washed away.
Leaving me without proof, or a path back home.

I looked away for just one moment,
Which is all it took for you to disappear.

Were you just an imaginary friend
Whom I outgrew over the years?

depressing poem about a faltering faith 

You had my back,
But maybe you were only
Fulfilling a maintenance request.

'Cuz a wall was built.
It does its job, and you've done yours,
So now the carpenter must have left.

You are a social psychosis
Which we invent in our times of need.

A necessary neurosis
To cope with the imperfect lives we lead.

Even now,
As I shiver while the air thins and grows colder,
I swear,
I can feel your hand now resting on my shoulder.

This is really good. It captures so thoughts and emotional journey of deconstruction very accurately. Thank you for sharing.
