Goodbye, Love

They’d always told me that
Love is a sacred feeling

But that prematurely
It’s worse than stealing

I thought that we had reached
That day

But now you’ve gone and stolen
My love away

And I can see how right and wrong
They really were

And even though it’s hard for me
To see through this blur

That the world’s become…
I know we’re done

So I
I’m saying goodbye

‘Cause you aren’t good for me
Doesn’t matter what I thought we could be

It will never transpire
And my road is higher

Because it was you
Who

Ruined what I thought would
Be that day

Because you went and stole
My love away

And I’ll never
I shouldn’t ever

Get over something
That left me feeling like nothing

Like you did
And amid

All the rubble
That used to be our bubble

I stand and stare
Pretend I don’t care

But with every step I take
I forget how fake

Your love was
And all this…because

You didn’t care about
That day

Didn’t think twice ‘bout stealing
My love away

To think that I thought you could be the one
Now I just wish it could all be undone

And I wish I could stop dreaming
That I could stop feeling

The way I do
About you

Because you don’t deserve it.
You aren’t worth it.

Thank you! I was a little bit "iffy" about this poem, because it's the first one where I wrote about something I had never experienced. Normally I use what I'm feeling as my muse.

thats the same for me. i usually can't find the right words if i haven't gone through the experience. sometimes its good to try something else, though.

This is good too! And if it's just a poem, I think it would be really good as a song, or a poem that is kind of sing songy if you know what i mean. But thats only when you share it with ppl :)

Thanks! It is a song, but unfortunately it isn't in my vocal range so I can't sing it to anybody...
