I used to hear the angels sing whenever you were near
now I’m locked in silence
imprisoned with tears of sorrow and pain
feelings of regret
I used to feel a warm glow when our eyes met
our thoughts we shared
with promises of love, you’d always be there
the day came when you no longer cared
what did I do? what did I say?
to make you feel that way
the pain lies heavy in my heart
a lump rises in my throat, my eyes fill with tears
the world is so dark and gloomy
I’m so alone
why did you leave?
you shattered my heart
I loved you….

I’m sharing this poem that I wrote when I was in high school. I was feeling really sad about something that was happening in my life and needed a creative outlet. I hope you all enjoy it!
