Everything Was Nothing


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2014 with permission of the Author.

The looks, the heat
Every smile, so sour, so sweet.
I had known you made me complete.
Everything I needed, I never wanted more,
Yet every time, I was run down straight to the core.
Every kiss, every step, every dance on the floor.
Everything was nothing. When you left me...out that door.
Our life, our plans, our future, in your hands.
Like a stab or a wound, I'll get better...if I can.
I know it's not the same, forever is the blame.
I tried so hard, for one who wanted more, for someone's heart
Who won't be allowed to be tamed.
It was the best, a love-never small but when one
Leaves the other, the best will fall.
Let the tears drop. Let the feelings fly.
Because at least in public, I will not cry.
My heart still beats, locked in your chest.
It's pitiful, sad, but I love you, dear traitor.
If you can stay, you can trample my heart, but don't ever go away.
But if not, you're gone, I don't expect less,
But if it's true just lay with me and rest.
Help me rebuild me
Out of whatever's left.
