Heart Broken - Poem by Cody Campbell

What I don't get about this girl is how she can make me laugh and smile but at the same time make me want cry.
How is it that the same emotions that make me happy also produce this horrible lump in my chest.
How is it that her actions make it clear that she does not want me yet her words make it clear that she does.
What I don't get is how this beautiful angel, kind and friendly can be so cruel as to drag me along for the ride.
Like a little girl dragging her lunchbox through the mud spilling the fragile pieces on the ground.
The words 'I'm sorry' can only be undertoned by the pitiful cry of 'it's ok'
I am tired of taping my heart back together


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I'm looking back on this poem in awe. I wrote this after a girl hurt me. Oddly enough this poem is what made her change her mind about me. We dated for two years after i wrote this. I didn't write another poem after this until six months ago after she broke my heart. I just barely found my way back to this, it is crazy how words can help you time travel. if you want to finish the story i'll post the poem i wrote after she dumped me. Its called stars.
