Of Course I'm Wrong

Of Course I'm Wrong

A Poem by Iz

I opened my heart to you
I let you see the deepest depths that
I have never let another soul see
For fear of what you just have done
For fear of having it destroyed without even a flinch

How could you?
I could have sworn I heard utterings of love
I could have sworn I saw forever in your eyes
I could have sworn I felt our souls become one
I could have sworn I saw a tear mirror mine when you bid me farewell
I could have sworn I heard two hearts shattering

But I guess I was wrong!
I guess I heard the radio blaring love songs
I guess I saw my reflection in your eyes
I guess I felt a simple hug
I guess I saw only my tears in the glass
I guess there was only one shattered heart

When I heard what now came out of your mouth
When I saw your stony eyes
When I felt your clammy skin
When I saw your dry eyes
When I looked into your soul

All that was there was a stone uncapable of love
All that was there was a whithered rose
All that was there was such a calm
All that was there was a barrierer of barbed wire
All that was there was a dream that is now known to never come true

I loved you with all that I was
And I would have loved you until the end of time
I still love you even after all of this
I know if you said you were sorry
I would be more than willing to come running into your arms
I know I would just simply forget all of the pain and suffering you put me through
I would be whole again
I would know that my only wish has come true

But this isn't to be
So here it is
Here is my goodbye
Here is some superglue
Please when you are through playing with my heart
Piece it back together and return it
And make sure that not a single piece is left with you
Because when you return it
I promise you won't ever see it again
