A Fool's Mistake - Poem by Alyx Hodgin

'Don't cut yourself on
The pieces of my
Broken heart, '
She said.
'Just go,
Turn out the light,
And leave me
In the dark.'
I looked into her
Eyes that night and
All I saw was pain.
The sight too much
For me to bear,
I turned
And shut the door again.
These were
The last few steps
She ever saw me take,
For when I saw her
On the floor,
I knew I'd made
A fool's mistake.

    Oh noh this was remorseful and has a melancholic ending and expresses the remorse well. Kudos for the emotive touches and style that builds up the dramatic perhaps real life scenes. Hope it is out of imagination eh. Pls do review my latest poem too titled mother natures. ....... (Report) Reply

    Tragedy in bliss of love well depicted in the poem. A well articulated piece of poetry, nicely encapsulated and penned with conviction. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
