"If your heart won't give and only takes, then I won't give you mine to break" -Scarlett Pomers

I remember the day we met,
I could feel the happiness setting in
At dusk.
And the joy spread out on my face
At dawn.
I woke up the next day completely
In love.
I was untouchable,
And so, I thought, was our love.

You held me close,
Despite the distance;
Said it could never matter;
Said that you loved me
More than anything;
Said we were meant to be.
You said forever and ever

You were my guardian angel,
Matching face and all;
Because your halo had more iridescent
Than a heavenly light.
I could not see anything.
But the love you felt.
Forever was not as long
As what literature says.
You were gone within
Five fortnights.

I felt so cold on the inside,
No air, no life.
You were my everything.
So now I’m left, vacant and hollow.
How could you have left me?
I thought I did everything right.
Being in love is always drenched in spice,
Because you can never know when
It gets stale.

Without a warning,
Without a goodbye,
Without a say-so,
I stand here in isolation,
Without my heart,
For it has died.
But my love for you has not.

The author's comments:
My ex-boyfriend, Adam, left me not too long ago. I wrote this as a way to release my misery. It is one of my many desolate poems about him.
