You didn’t hurt me this time.
I didn’t feel anything when you told me you didn’t want to be with me.
I wasn’t sad.
I wasn’t mad.
I wasn’t upset.
I laughed actually.
because I knew that I didn’t need you to live.
I can live my life without you, I don’t need you. I didn’t know that before, but I do now.
You just made me feel better for a while.
Then I noticed that we just weren’t meant to be.
I sat on my bed and couldn’t believe I wasted my tears on you.
You weren’t worth them.
You just took my loneliness away for a while.
But that came back faster than you took it.
I was stupid for thinking I loved you.
You said everything you ever said to me was true.
But at the end of all this everything was a lie to me.

Why wait for someone
when you have a gut feeling they are not gonna wait for you?
why hold on to something
when you feel that they are going to move on?
well I’m not going to
cos in the end I’m gonna get hurt.
I got my stuff,
but do you have yours?

Why all of a sudden did you have to change?
Why in the world did you begin acting so strange?
Why did you let things change your mind?
Why was it so easy to leave me behind?
Why have you let go of who you really are ?
Why did you pretend our relationship would go so far?
Why did you make promises to stick by my side?
Why couldn’t we make it thru this last and final ride?
Why did you give up on me, what did I do?
Why did you let another man take my place of being with you?
Why am I so stuck on you, I really don’t know?
Why cant it be so easy for me just to let go?
Why you chose this path is beyond my control?
Why now do I have to rebuild my mind, body, and soul?
Why am I looking back, I guess to say goodbye?
Why I wrote this poem, just to ask why?

All my dreams have
Withered and died.
For this is the truth
I can no longer hide.
I was left with nothing but
The thoughts in my head.
And the painful memories,
Of sorrow and dread.
I hear all the voices form
The mistakes that I’ve made.
All these regrets that
I have long age paid.
Pain dwells where
The eye cannot see.
A broken heart
A broken love
And a broken memory.

I feel a shortness of my breath
I feel I’m falling to my death
My heart is heavy it’s beating fast
How long does this empty feeling last
It’s all my fault I hurt him badly
Now he’s leaving I say sadly
This life is short & full of pain
It seems I’m gonna go insane
What is normal who’s to say
I know that pain is the price I pay
Is it worth it to try & mend this
He’s so easily offended
I don’t know what else to do
I’m lost I’m hurt I don’t have a clue
Another loss this love is over
I need some luck like a four leaf clover
I don’t know why this happens to me
I’m to blame can’t you see
So be gone & don’t look back
I won’t be here for you to attack
I loved you more than you’ll ever know
So turn around like you said & go

She wore a broken smile
For just a little while.
She’d paint it on everyday
For no certain reason,
Not the color of the season,
The simple shade of gray.
The shameful walk,
Oh if walls could talk
I wonder what they’d say.
“There she goes,
No one knows
How she begged him to stay”.
But she stood there so confused
That night, broken and used
And watched him drive away.
Black rivers roll down her face
His love no one can ever replace.
A scar this deep will stay.
A river of red,
A concrete bed
Is where she will now lay.

The steps became quiet
your figure faded
your taste left in my mouth
you said you loved before but not like this
I was young and in love
so stupid to get it
I can’t figure it out why you did this
maybe the girl I was then is different
changed and grown not so frisky
memories start to fade and more things I get
my heart is held together with glue and stitches
you were gone nothing was left
I wanted you back
how sad is that
I’m so through with that
cos honestly you turned out to be the best thing that left
