Hanging on the Other Side

You did it again to me.

Made a promise that you can't keep.

I showed you my heart,

but you never even replied.

You couldn't even be man enough

to say goodbye.

Take this,

it's a picture of us

ripped and torn apart

just like you did to our trust.

Just forget it,

I don't want your apologies.

Look at the damages

that you have caused me.

It is because of people like you

that make me wish I was never brought into this world.

It is because of you

that I am too afraid to hope.

You are the nightmare that I face,

the reason why I am afraid to wake




what the world is,

compared to what I wish




Every night when I go to sleep,

I'll remember the time

when you ripped my heart out,

When you left me hanging on the other side.

Where to begin, where to begin? I suppose the begining will do.

You capture the reader's attention right away (10/10)

Keep the reader's attention (10/10)

It's extremely relateable (10/10)

Beautiful peace of writting! Keep it up! Never give up!
