Heart ache

Is there a better place,
To be right now,
Than to be home,
Listening to the crickets’ sounds,
Outside the windows.
Is there a better place,
To be right now,
Than in the bed,
Closing my eyes,
Falling into a deep sleep,
To forget about the days,
Forget about the nights,
Forget about you.

My heart aches and there is,
Nothing better than to sleep,
To forget that you are gone,
To forget your lies,
Forget the way,
You told me,
You never loved me,
Forget the way,
You looked at me,
When you left me,
I want to forget,
I want to leave this world,
Close my eyes,
Fall to sleep to stop the heart,
From beating.
I block my ears,
From hearing the sounds,
Like your voice,
Like when you sing to me,
Those lovely songs,
They sounded to tender,
Now they kill me,
They hurt me,
I don’t want to hear anything,
Don’t want to hear the waves,
Hitting against the sand,
Don’t want to hear the birds,
Chirping outside the windows.

Don’t want to see you,
Don’t want anything,
That has to do with you,
I want to stop the bleeding in my heart from your lies. But one thing that confuses me is why I still love you.

This is great!  I can feel the raw emotion in your writing.  It's just the last line is too long; it seems out of place because of your short stanzas.

This is what happens when a guy cheats on you. You write about the guy.
