Because Life Isn't Roses and Happy Endings

April 23, 2008
By Tyler Hahn, West Lafeyette, OH

I CAN HEAR THE SOFT PAT,
OF THE SHATTERED PIECES OF MY BROKEN HEART,
LIKE RAIN, SOFTLY PATTING THE ROOFTOPS,
IN THE SILENT DEAD OF NIGHT.

DUST AND DRIED TEARS,
THAT’S ALL THAT’S LEFT,
DRIFTING FARTHER AWAY,
WITH EACH PASSING BREATH.

I JUST CAN’T GET OVER,
THAT ONE SIMPLE FACT,
YOU WILL NEVER LOVE ME,
LIKE I LOVE YOU.

MEMORIES THAT BRING SUCH PAIN,
NOT PHYSICAL BUT EMOTIANAL,
HOW I WISH I WAS HIM,
I JUST GOT JEALOUS THAT’S ALL.

I GUESS THAT’S JUST LIFE,
BUT I’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOUR SMILE,
BECAUSE LIFE ISN’T ALL ROSES,
AND HAPPY ENDINGS.
