I don't love you anymore

I don't love you anymore

A Poem by InkSlinger
"

Bitter words slipped from her mouth.

"
I don't love you anymore
I just don't love you, at all..
I hear the whispering winds
deliver faintly your painful oath

Those words rang loudly through my head
falling out of your vengeful mouth
so careless, so crass
until they spilled forth staining your shirt

I had been hanging on with a hopeful heart
until I heard those words roll free
clinging to the hope
that tomorrow would be a better day.

It wasn't the words
that pricked at my soul
but the years lost in you
that weakened my legs.

Wasting time on empty promises
that you never intended to keep
shadowing, coloring lies just enough
to make me believe.

Like small tears from squinting eyes
your wringing hands grasped,
strangling my beating heart
until love laid dead at your feet.

I don't love you anymore
I heard those words roll off my lips
Lies on the whispering wind
never to be delivered.

I watched you walk away
knowing that love was no more
as my words fell on deaf ears
I cried for you.

I don't love you any less....

The pain is radiating from this piece.

Beautiful!
I felt the pain in this as " I heard those words roll of my lips " and a tear when you say "I don't love you any less..."
well done.

So vulnerable, so torn, yet again. This is the true beauty of a goodbye. To speak a lie if only to save yourself from another. The exhaustion one experiences from being laid on a bed of nails much too long. You again have grasped my heart in this one. Beautiful. Simply beautiful. ^_^

Very nice. Beautiful display of emotion. I specially liked the ending, which paints a very touching parting scene, sad, yet positive.

This is wonderful. I really understood the last line, "I don't love you any less..." It's as if we lose our passion for the other, not necessarily our love. So easily the passion goes, the reasoning for staying with it.
