Heartbroken


Saying you loved me, with that look in your eye,
I wish I could say, it was a cold hearted lie,

I know that you love me, I know that you care,
But the rage inside you, slowly flared.

I admit I've made many errors and mistakes,
over stepping the boundaries Which made me look fake,

I always said I would never do the things I did,
And I know that's why it so hard for you to forgive
.
So many times, we've said that we'd try,
Just to turn around, and make each other cry
.
Remember how it was, when we first started out?
We fell so hard, maybe fell in love,

At one point you'd notice, ONLY me in the room.
Now it seems our relationship is headed for doom,

We both did things we can't undo,
And not that long ago, I was EVERYTHING to you,

I admit my mistakes, but can you admit yours?
I have paid for what I have done, as you've paid for yours.

You call me names and act like you don't care,
All the while, our love for each other is still there.

I never meant to hurt you, or cause you any pain,
I know neither of us want to go through this same thing again.

I owe you so much, and I have so much to prove to you
But you continue to do things you wouldn't want me to do

We always have these tears to cry,
And are left with all these wondering questions of why?

Why can't we get past the past? You think I expect to much to fast,
But don't you want to become whole at last?

Why won't you at least try to believe me, instead of pushing me further away?
I have these emotions, I wish you could see all of it in array

Sometimes I get really upset, cause I feel you don't understand me
Deep inside me I know I shouldn't let it to be

Will you ever love me like you USED to? Show me the love
that I ONCE knew?
The love that from, we Both grew,

When will you see? I'm starting to feel like I hardly know you anymore?
When can we go back to how it was before?

Will we still hurt if we heal? Or by that time, will we still feel?
My dreams of US does not look like it's coming true, All I feel is sad and blue,

And I know you're looking for other things to 'do',
You're sick of me, and want something new.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
