A Poem by Jazzlyn B Barden

This  is  what  it  felt  like

When  you  disappeared.

Leaving  me  all  alone,

To  deal  with  my  darkest  fears.

I  see  you   everyday,

But  you’re  not  really  there.

Pictures  aren’t  the  same

As  having  you  standing  here.

Walking  the  halls  alone,

As  laughter  fills  my  ears.

Must  be fun  to  have someone

Who  won’t  go  disappear.

No  texts  or  calls  left  on  my  phone,

Just  the  sound  of  your  voicemail.

The  same  voice  I’ve  heard  all  these  years,

But  it’s somehow different now.

The  only  one  who  gave  a  damn

Left  without  a  trace.

Now  I’m  left  here  by  myself,

Trying  to  remember  your  face.

Since  I  am no  longer  noticed,

And  no  one  ever  sees  me,

I  wonder if  it  will  even matter  if…

I  disappeared  along  with  you.

I love the way you've presented this poem ^^ I think everyone can relate to this on some level and there's no better way to vent than to write poetry - I would know :) Very interesting poem and beautifully written, well done! ^^

There is no other terrible feeling than to be left by the one we love... I have been there more than once in my life, putting myself out there and then being ignored... Your words convey the deepest pain of a broken heart my frnd... And your presentation of the poem with different coloured fonts makes it more stand out...

Survivor's guilt... broken relationships... a choice or no choice at all - and how another deals again and again and ...again - even when they can't deal at all ...it's still a choice.

Nice set-up of the poem. Gave more meaning to the thoughts and the emotions. When someone or something is missed. Parts of us will suffer. Thank you Jazzlyn for sharing the excellent poetry.

I enjoy writing non fiction, and a lot of poems that actually mean something. I hope that when people read my poems that they feel something. I also write songs from time to time. Besides writing, .. more..
