I Hope You're Happy (I seriously do)

By , Kailua, HI
All the little pieces, still throb
All the little shattered bits
Of a broken heart,
Are still in love with someone
Who will never come back

The long dead feelings
Resurface a little bit
And the long forgotten anger
Will return

After the tears are shed
And the yelling is done
I will be left alone
No emotions or feelings to speak of
No one to love and no one to cherish

It's over and I have nothing left,
But I hope you're happy

Kind of stupid, right?
Shouldn't I be angry?
And sad?
I shouldn't be hoping your happy,
I should be hoping you trip and go into a coma

But I can't bring myself to hate you
Not yet anyway
Maybe in a couple of years,
When the pain has dulled

But for now, I'll toast to your future
And toast to your future with her

The perky, pretty redhead
Always wearing button ups and the cute little skirts
Her hair always perfectly styled and her makeup always perfectly fixed
I don't hate her either
She seemed nice

For now I'll stay holed up with my ice cream and slapstick comedy shows
One day I'll emerge and hopefully find someone to heal me
Not fully, but enough for me to function

When that day comes, I'll hate you
Only because I have a backup plan

But for now, I hope you're happy

Wow! That is, like, the best poem I've ever read. Kudos to you! ;)

I can't really relate to it, but I could feel your emotion/feeling through it. It almost made me kind of sad. :)
