Just How You Left Me

You left me with unexplainable pain

With no one to turn to

Questioning all I've ever known



You left me with absolutely nothing to gain

Grasping at shards of life

Holding onto every shred of hope



You left me crying in the rain

Wondering what I did wrong

And why you had to leave so soon



You left me with an ugly stain

From all the words that scarred me

And the careless demeanor you had about you



You left me, it was all in vain

And now, I'm a disaster, gripping at sanity
So, I'll fall apart without you, destroyed and all alone

I love how you rhymed the first line of each stanza, it really makes the poem flow!

And this is a very relatable poem, for everyone who's struggling and feels like there's no one there for them. I could place myself in the poem. Good job! :)
