This is a poem that I wrote about one of my boyfriends.
I see you walking towards me, and I'm so filled with joy that I think that I'll burst.
I run to meet you, smiling and happy.
I look up at you grinning and full of happiness, even though I can see the annoyance and hatred in your eyes as you gaze down at me.
I hear the words "I Love You" come out of my mouth, Yet I don't realize that I am the one who said it.
Your eyes narrow and darken in anger and your lips curve into a cruel sneer.
You reach into my chest and rip my still beating heart out of the jagged, gaping hole created.
You then throw it to the ground and stomp on it, grinding it into pieces under your heel.
You turn and walk away without saying a word and without looking back.
I fall to my knees beside the remains of my broken heart, a single tear trailing down my cold cheek.
I pick up the tiny pieces and try to put them back together.
It is of no use, my heart has been shattered to many times in the past to be fit back together, even once more.
I let the pieces of my heart fall from my hand, allowing the wind to scatter them far and wide, never to be found again.
I get to my feet and walk away, with a cold empty feeling in my chest.
I feel my soul shrivel and blacken from all the pain and anger I've suffered until it can no longer be recognized as a soul, but something cold, harsh, and unfeeling.
