Death Of Lover Poem

I used to have a lover, She was my everything. I loved her passionately for three years, believing that I wasn't good enough for her, before an ex-girlfriend got jealous and tried to stab me. Seeing it coming, Savannah grabbed me and put me behind her at the last minute. She was stabbed instead and died protecting me to prove that I was good enough for her. I cried for a year and a half and I still am now.

Snowy, My Love

default ©

Published: December 2011

I wanted to marry her.
Her love was the only cure
for the heartbreak I seen.
For her heart had been
where I had when it broke.
And that's where we choked.

The first year was magic.
The second, I wanted to marry her.
the third, it was when it was tragic
when her heart stopped and she hit the dirt.

a jealous past was all it took.
Now, Snowy's grave is where I look,
wishing I could rewind to the past
and say I love you to her like it was my last.

No hug, no kiss, no promises of love.
only the words, "I'll wait for you in heaven above."
so to show me what love was and could be
she took a knife in the back and died for me.

I lost my boyfriend of 3 years last year, July 2018. He was involved in a car accident in November 2017. Ever since that tragic day, he kept complaining of headaches, and nothing seemed to help. In July 2018, it was a normal day. He sent me a good morning voicemail and a selfie like he does each morning since we stayed in different areas. Later that afternoon I got a call from his colleague telling me he collapsed and was being rushed to the hospital. They couldn't do anything. He was gone already. I'm only 23 years old. How do I deal with this?

It's going on 3 months, and I still cry every day. I don't sleep at night. So I'm not sure when or if the pain ever goes away.

Please tell me how to deal with it. I left my ex because I caught him cheating on me. Well, I had met a guy who treated me like a queen. On Jan 9 we were out together and we ran into my ex who always told me he didn't want to lose me. It happened so quickly. My ex pulled out a gun and fired a shot at me. Deante, my new boyfriend, jumped in front of the bullet. It killed him instantly, severing his spine. I watched him die. Before I could run my ex shot me in the chest. He just barely missed my heart. I managed to run. I couldn't get out the door. He was blocking it. I hid under a desk behind a metal filing cabinet. He found me and shot me two more times. Then he went and shot Deante lifeless on the floor again. When it stopped I peeked out, and he was changing the gun clip. With 3 bullets in me I managed to get up and run out of the building. The police were there. I collapsed once I got past the first cops. Deante was my best friend for 8 years. Then my love.

I have no words to tell you how to get over all this chaos. I can only tell you with Christ and time it will become bearable. I do not believe anyone can tell you a better answer than this.

How long did it take for the pain to fade? I just lost my husband 3 weeks ago, and it gets harder each day.
