A Poem by Lissianna

Its memories of you that keep me awake at night

You once made my heart burn so bright

Now I feel so empty and torn

All the tears I'm holding inside could create a storm

Thought you felt the same ,as I felt about you

Tell me do you ever think of me or miss me too

Why did you go and break the walls of my heart down

If you didn't plan on sticking around

You made me feel so alive and free

I never wanted you to leave

I trusted you and started to fall farther and farther

If I had known you weren't going to catch me I wouldn't have bothered

When I was with you I felt like I could be the real me

Now I see how broken I will always be

You were never mine, yet I'm like a moth to the flame

My foolish heart still yearns and cries your name

I'll be fine, that's what I'll say

While deep inside its a struggle to get through the day

Don't promise everything will be okay, not to shed a tear

When I'm choking and drowning and your not here

I should have known you were too good to be true

So why do I still care about someone who left me cold and blue

You had found my missing piece

But then you took it with you, leaving me once again incomplete

Sorry, I'm quite wasted and I'm having trouble typing and such. ;D

Aspiring poet/writer, I have a variety of hobbies and interests and have a bubbly personality once you get to know me. I've been going through a bit of a hiatus lately due to writers block and other e.. more..
