When I saw his name pop up
In your phone.
I felt something in me break
& it hasn’t been right since.
The way you call my name,
The way you touch me.
I knew it was over.
I continued to go about,
Remembering the person I once
When you’d kiss me your grip
Only got looser, while mine
Became tighter.
The receiving end of closed eyes
In search of better times,
Reliving a moment perhaps
I’d never live again.
Deep down I felt something in me
Break, something only you had
The power to fix.
The voice in my head told me,
The way you grabbed me the last
Time we met told me.
The way you tried to hide it
The way I pretended not to see
Told me.
Your eyes told a familiar story,
Not everything needs to be said.
To be dumb deaf & blind,
I love you that much

Looking at him by that door,
It hurts like your first baby tooth falling out.
A space left empty by something so familiar.
I can still feel the warmth of his pressure on my chest,
And boy, I miss it.
He looks like a kicked puppy when he has to leave,
But I feel like one.
And every night,
I turn the lock to the right then back to the left.
I can’t lock this door.
I can’t for fear that I’ll walk into my room
And he’ll run up,
Meeting a barrier which I allowed
To come between us,
And I can’t for hope that he will come back,
Arms open, jaw set crooked, biting his lip.

I didn't want you to stay.
But I'm glad you did.
I didn't want you to go.
But I'm glad you did.

Warm me
Turn my eyes
into honey
And my hair
into gold
Give life
to the world
Give life
to my soul
Don’t go
I was always told
You’d never disappear

Feel free to plagiarize
If you see
Something you like
If you step inside my mind
I will give you all my light

You could never break my soul
Feel free to steal and lie
I will always love you
Somewhere deep inside!!!!

Who knew how much
The heart would ache
For every day
That you are away

God only knows
The mess I've become
Without you
How can I carry on

Things are harder
Without your wisdom or guidance
And I feel so blind
Lost in hateful darkness

You'll never know what I knew
Like my new found appreciation for only your tattoos

You'll never see what I've seen
like how the halo of your eyes are the same color as me

You'll never feel what I felt
How the warmth of your embarrass causes me to melt

You'll never hear what I've heard
The echoes from your laugh and the passion in your murmurs  

You'll never cry the way I've cried
From the pits of my stomach, the burning inside when you said goodbye
But you must know how much I love you.

Why did you go?
More importantly where did you go?
I’ve looked everywhere for you so you can return my heart but,
Now I’m weak without it.
And I can’t look anymore.
I asked.
I begged you not to leave.
Only a few more hours I pleaded.
‘No!’ You screamed.
Will I ever have my heart back?
Or has someone else already got it?
Not that good.
Feeling sad today.

Lying next to you is like heaven on earth.
Surely you dont realize what exsactly you do to me.
My heart is in ruin.
How the **** can I let you go.
I cant find sleep.
I'm watching you sleep.
And your talking in your sleep.
These little moments with you I will always cherish.
Why did you give yourself to me, if you were just going to leave.
I understand you need to find yourself.
Let yourself heal from a wicked past.
A past that haunts you so badly.
Theres no room left for me.

I need to be a man about this.
I need to let you go.
But darling I cant seem to know how.
Before sunrise you'll be gone.
Out of my life.
I love you C.
Always have always will.
Please come back.
Please be my wife.
Heartbreak is something very new to me.
