A Day Of Heartbreak - Poem by scarlette Phoenix

A simple statement
Just a few words long
Cut like a knife
And now everything's wrong

It started with a deep breath
The words then followed

Made shattered dreams

Now everything's hollowed

She kept it in

The pain, heartache and fears

Rest her head and prayed

Tomorrow there would be no tears

Soon the sun rose

Bringing a new day


She locked her fears away

Keeping busy

Pushing out the thought

Watching the clock

Waiting to see what time brought

Hours passed by

Time will soon tell

Has her heart grown stronger

And out of love fell

The clock has struck

And so it seems

She's out of luck

And weak

Not a word was sent

Not a word was heard

Staring at his name

Her eyes teared

Pushing through her dark cloud

Setting aside fears

Needing to hear his voice

Wiping away tears

With a simple 'hi'

Relief washed over her

With a sigh

Her pain fades away

After a day of uncertainty

Heartache & pain

Still in love it seems

With no disdain
