I have loved in vain.

by anand singh   Nov 8, 2015


After the ties that had bound our hearts together was broken,
the pain that followed were unspoken.
It cuts me up inside like a dull serrated knife,
my soul was sent spiralling into the depths of grief and strife.

It seems that for me, the sun had ceased to shine,
as I came to the realization that you will never be mine.
With tears in my eyes I stood, and stared vacantly into space,
it felt like I no longer wanted to be in this place.

Now back to that dreadful life that I once knew,
a life of pain and loneliness before I met you.
As overwhelming emotions, only prolongs the pain,
I've realized that once again I have loved in vain.

    Paul each word you have penned cuts like a knife, into the readers heart. Your pain brings tears to my eyes. I know how long you have waited for her to return your love. You have to watch out, there are so many women in the world who will use you then spit you out. I call them "man eaters" Take care of yourself
    Love Cindy

      Thank you Cindy. She keeps leaving and coming back saying sorry, and each time I forgive her. It hurts, it does hurt. She knows that the poems I post on Facebook is about her and me yet she acts as if it's not. Take care my friend.
