Shattered Heart

Shattered Heart

A Poem by SeemsPoetic
"

The sad truth about how some relationships turn out

"

Written by: Eric Fraley


AKA: SeemsPoetic



Took a shattered heart
Took these shattered dreams

couldn't even tell the two apart

So similar the two feelings seemed


Now hold up...
Give me a moment cuz here's  a tail I'd like to impart
It's the typical story about a boy
Bout a girl
They realized both from the same perspective is how they saw the world

They gave the love game a whirl

For him
She was the pinnacle of perfection

When ever she asked him about her flaws he responded along the lines of

"I'd never correct them "
Whenever he stumbled

Whenever he fell

She'd be right there to resurrect him


But of course
Like any game
The interest began to wane after a while

The feelings got harder and harder to sustain
Let me tell you to beware cuz the signs will be there

That moment the game starts to be played unfair
The emotions can go from the weakest to highest waves

than deep deep down…

They can dig the deepest of shallow graves

battered and scared is what happens when you take emotions so far

The tidal waves begin to crash and sway as it falls apart and begins to wash away the remnants of a shattered heart  


So much pain caused by the smallest poison dart but he still looks back at the best of memories...

He thinks about when the poisons pain began to start
She sees him sitting in that office chair reminiscing  bout the past

She confronts him and
she asks...
"What ever happened to the friend in me!

What do you expect from me!

What am I supposed to do!...


I use to feel so close to you..."


“A time I felt that

I can't even remember the last…”


He thinks...


And thinks…


Then responds

"She's stuck in the present mind…


But your present  minds

presently stuck in the past
Ever since that day I snapped..

Put that fist through the wall beside you...

The day I let it all out was the day there was no going back
Ever since that day back when we were 18
The friend in me

Is someone you haven't seen..

ever since that day,
Since that day we haven't dreamed"

"Since that day we've drifted apart"
"E v e r   S i n c e  T h a t  D a y...

We've shared the  scars of one shattered heart."


But like I had said…

Just a simple tail I had liked to impart.
