A Teardropp Too Heavy


When you and I first separated
I wanted to run off and hide
I created discussions between us
I Strangled my love deep inside

I can't stand to see me without you
It feels so stupid and cruel
But if you and I don't stay together
Aren't we both playing the fool?

After living for six months without you
You showed up and brightened my life
I didn't dare say that I love you
I did ask if you'd be my wife

I can still see you looking so lovely
In a satin dress colored in peach
I was screaming inside to please love me
But u were no longer in reach

You sent me away with the flick of your wrist
I cried yes I cried and I cried
My heart said that you should still love me
My head said hey maybe she lied

Now time passes ever so slowly
I'm living a life that's a lie
I can't stand just living without you
I'm shriveling waiting to die

I can't go on living without you
I feel that my life is a flop
A teardropp too heavy starts crying
A heart that stays broken will stop

    This is a lament in the truest sense and with it's honesty it really pulls at the heartstrings - - 'I can't stand to see me without you' could almost be the title of a ballad Beau.... and the whole thing would no doubt translate well with music.... just the tenderest romantic write - - well done........10 from Fay.

    When we became unloved we feel broken inside, time will heal the wounds they say but aren't wounds leave scar of pain? Awesome poem of loneliness devoid of love. A 10. (Report) Reply

    What first drew my attention, was the title - the tears that must have come from your eyes, would have been entirely too heavy for one's cheek to hold. I can feel the pain dripping from your poem, and your aching heart as it slowly stops. You will one day find the person that deserves the other side of your poetry. You show such emotion in your pieces of poetry.

    Yes this poem is filled with an innermost pained broken heart. This poem is beautiful and perhaps that heartbreak will be replaced with another one who
    will be wanting your special feelings of love. A great write is this poem.

    God bless and best regards-Michael Jeffrey Gale. (Report) Reply

    You will be amazed at how broken hearts can keep going, but without the tick tock, it is an emply going Beau! I hope someone starts yours again. Hearts are apt to re-start without us even realising. I like the title and the poem is obviously heartfelt, ticking or no. Good expressive poem. Tai (Report) Reply

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
