You removed your soul, then proceeded to remove my heart MAG

You said you would capture the stars for me
And thread them on Midas's string.
You said I should wear it around my neck,
That it would complement my eyes.
But they were empty promises,
Spoken with the tongue of a false love.

That necklace would look out of place now anyway.
When you left you stole the sparkle from my eyes
And placed them in a safe with my heart
And your soul.

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

This is a beautiful poem, I love the eye-necklace comparison. Congrats on being published :)

There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the drama, & surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard; you forget about all the bad & focus soley on the good. After all, life's too short to be anything but happy (:
