Poem: Heartbreak City.

My phone rings.

But I run for the door.

I know it’s you calling.

But I can’t talk to you anymore.

_____________________

I leave the house.

I forget my shoes.

I take my tears,

So I can sing the blues.

_____________________

I wander around.

I lose my mind.

You said you sought for my heart,

But it wasn’t yours to find.

_____________________

People stare at me.

Their eyes fill with pity.

My heart is shattered.

It’s sprinkled throughout the city.

_____________________

Beautiful lies.

Venomous words.

I don’t need a knife in my heart:

I have your love.

_____________________

I loved you.

I lost myself for you.

I am done with you.

Your love will no longer do.
