Here is a poem that I wrote. It’s my first try at one so it may not be too great, but I hope that it is at least decent.
I say this here
Because I don’t know if there’s
Trust in my voice to say it aloud
But I’m sorry.
Out of everyone, I’m the worst of all.
You lied there so broken while I sat without a clue.
I should have been there to help take the fall.
Every other time you were there for me and on your turn, I fail you.
Pieces of my heart are now scattered across the floor, once again,
I look down on them with a silent hope that they will fall back together.
But you were here last time
Now you’re not and I look down, screaming, “I can’t do this anymore.”
Laughter radiates from the room next to me
As bittersweet memories are all I can see.
You’re one masterpiece, crowding up the space in my mind.
Without you here, there’s nothing left.
Now I go through the motions, just to go to sleep,
With old messages you once sent lying unread
Just as my new ones stay with the words left unsaid.
Then I wake once again, but close my eyes,
Because a world without you is not a world I want to see.
So here it is
With every ounce that I have left,
Every moment that has fled,
Every tear that I have wept,
All the words left unsaid.
I love you.
