Blogging, poetry

All we had is gone now.

“I remember years ago, someone told me I should take
caution when it comes to love.
I did.”

Let’s be honest
I was never
what you really wanted.
You never loved me
the way that I
loved you.
Did you even cry
remembering our shared time?
Foreshadowing our lives?
Everything left behind?
Did you even shed a tear
the moment we said “Goodbye”?

One day you loved me.
The next, you didn’t care.
One second, you’re hugging me.
The next, you’re not there.


“Tell them I was happy
and my heart is broken.
All my scars are open
Tell them what I hoped would be impossible.”

I’d never felt
such emotion.
Pierced me deep;
deeper than any ocean.
Now all our potential
has been laid to rest
and I miss you, Babe.
That I must confess.
Maybe in a new life
we could be perfect.
At the dawn of a new day
we could part the curtains.

Your pictures are put away;
I’ve taken it all down.
Can’t stand to see your face.
In these tears, I drown.
I’ve never felt so…
oh so weak.
I awake from dreams
searching for you in my sheets.
But you’re gone,
and now all I have
are fucking love songs
and what could’ve been.

Thanks for reading!
