A Poem by Enigma

I closed my eyes 

And he said

"I will never give up on you"

And he gave me up

To the convenience of his world

His beer and his friends


I closed my eyes

And he said

"I need you to be positive and just let it go"

And positively enough

He let me go

And replaced me with girls

More feminine

More open-minded

Not choked by the thousand knots that churn my insides

Probably better friends

And better lovers


I opened my eyes

And he said

"I am back, but only for a day"

Only that he didn't

I regret laying bare the wounds of my soul

To be plugged in by the pieces of my heart

He tore off

And gave them back to me

I am choked but I don't die


His words bring back

A thousand unspoken sorrows

And the empty promises of a better tomorrow

His lies colour the truth of our separation

With deceptively brilliant hues

Of a love gone sour


We grow up

We grow apart

He builds his life

I break my heart

Over the emptiness he has left behind


I close my eyes

And he is silent

Once again.

Crudely speaking, it is just a rant i needed to get out of my system.

The lines about your heart being ripped apart were the most striking to me- it's a visible personification of the depths of your painful feelings. Great poem.
