Loss

By
Lost a part of myself today

Got rejected last night

Told that I was too immature

And that I need to grow up

The invisible hand on my heart tightens

Choked in its grasp

Unable to get out

Now the words of rejection flood my mind



No,

I don’t want you in my life

Someone told me to leave you in the dark,

That someone your former friend,

Unable to do anything right

Making a complete mess of my life



How much more can a heart be forced to hold?

How much more hurt must be piled on top without a break?

What way to put the past all behind

And all my regrets?

A shattered heart

A broken mind

It feels like I lost my best friend today

And maybe I have



A feeling so fresh

The scar so long and deep on my heart

Yet only one among many others

Shall time help it fade?

My hurt go away?

My life ever be enjoyable again?



I lost a lot today

But what tomorrow shall I gain?

And yet to lose another day?

very good poem and subject matter, but you could work on it and tighten things up a bit, and you could have something extremely good.

Great job! You sure do have a lot of top 25 poems!
It's interesting the way you didn't include some words so the poem sounded kinda broken-almost like what the poem talks about, about being broken.
I'm learning how to analyze a poem, so I hope that helped you learn something new about your poetry. i have a teacher who always shows me something interesting about my poetry I didn't notice before. If you did see it, and meant the poem to be taken like that, extra cognrats ... (more »)

this is so true. i was right along with you the whole way and i totally agree with your final stanza. sometimes when you lose this things it seems like your world is going to end. but then you move one and find something better
