pool of hope/08.09.09

by ianblackpoet

She gave you everything you wished for

And said she’d never make you cry

Promised her love for ever more

You never figured out she lied

Her love dried up a week ago

Unlike your arm, which now is wet

All that love and happiness

You never will forget

You stand, reflecting on the past

Eyes burning through the mirror

You don’t feel pain, just misery

You’ve lost the one forever

Gazing down, you feel so hollow

Without her, you’re nothing more

Your only ever pool of hope

Now collecting on the bathroom floor
