A Poem by marty360
"

This is a very, VERY personal piece which I have written today about how I felt at the time this happened.

"
(Open in a new tab!)

We had a wonderful weekend,
From Friday morn to Sunday - you were mine,
We filled those last days,
With such passion, beauty and grace.

We made love,
Like it was earths last days,
We ordered take-out,
And stuffed our face.

We laid in my bed,
Watching crappy TV shows,
We walked in the blazing sun,
With the grass filling the space between our toes.

Sunday night came,
And I took you home,
Gave you a passionate kiss,
(But little did I know),
From that moment I'd be alone.

I awoke on the Monday,
To a text from you,

"Martin,
we need to talk"

I read the words and my thoughts pondered,
What could it be?
After the past few days,
It couldn't be the end of you and me.

I sat in a seminar,
About business law,
My mind not on my work at all,
Just sat, with an abysmal awe.

Monday afternoon at two,
You say what I dread,
It is the end,
Of me and of you.

I pace about my dorm room,
Staring at your last SMS,
Someone please save me,
I'm here screaming "S.O.S".

You try to console me,
With pixels that create words on my screen,
The force with which Newton was hit on the head,
So too did my Apple feel that force,
As the phone went smashing onto my bed.

Later that night I lay down,
With my face in the pillow,
My arms hanging at the side,
Just like the weeping willow.

Your face haunts my mind,
I can't stop thinking of you,
So I get up,
And gather a few things.

I take my cigarettes,
I take my vodka,
I take my Jager,
To take away the anchor.

I drink until I collapse,
And the hours start to elapse,
Family and friends begin to worry,
But I'm in my own world.

Tears stream down my face,
As I replay it in my mind,
- From the start,
To where you broke my heart,

2 years we were together,
24 months I gave you it all,
104 weeks/730 days,
Just for it to leave ME in a daze.

You said I could do better,
I said I couldn't,
Because when I had you,
I had it all.

It's now been over a year,
Since the night you walked away,
And I'm staring at the moon,
Picturing that weekend,
In my dorm room.

I told myself I wouldn't miss you,
I told myself I don't care,
But even after all this time,
I just wish you were here.

I know you've moved on,
Long ago,
And I try to every day,
But lately you've been creeping into my mind.

So basically,
What I'm trying to say,
Is I miss you,
In so many ways.

You may realise I have given it the same title as the Ed Sheeran song, the reason being that I can relate to this song in such a huge way and it fits with the poem.

I shed a manly tear for you mate, *sshh, tell no-one*. A really good piece, although at first I begin reading it to the tune of Ed Sheeran and it didn't fit. But the mood the music creates, they both fit perfectly. Bravo mate, a really good piece. You should consider writing a full song.

It's thoughtful and descriptive and very song-like. I can very much see where Ed Sheeran comes in here XD

Thank you :)
this is an awful thing to go through. the feeling of total betrayal is overwhelming...and you will go through all five stages of grief before "acceptance" kicks in...and even then it will not feel any better for quite some time...you have to decide not to hate her for breaking your heart, in fact, if you truly love her you will let her be, as a lover, and be her friend...wishing for her continued happiness. tough nut to crack, good luck...and nicely emoted!
