I drive along a beautiful country road
I can’t through the tears streaking down my face.
My lashes are damp
My eyes red and swollen
The world seems to stand still for an endless moment
No clouds moving
No wind blowing through the trees
No birds have songs of joy to sing
The only sound is that of my heart beating I my ears.
A bittersweet rain
Fills my broken heart
It takes all that I possess
Not to let it rip me apart
How do I move on
How do I face another day
When The fire of my hopes and dreams
has been washed away
Its finally finished
At long last
Nothing remains but soot and ash
This poem is about the disillusion of a relationship that wasn’t meant to be.
