A Hearts Story Poem by Haven Leonel

A Hearts Story

I once heard a story straight from the heart,
about a boy and how his world began to fall apart.
It all started when he met the girl that made his life complete,
just thinking of her made his heart skip a beat.

They were the couple everyone wanted to be,
there were no imperfections as either one could see.
As the weeks passed they fell more in love and were less aware,
of how often life turns out to be unfair.

Until one day she finally gave in,
she realized there was no way she could win.
She said I'm sorry but i have to let you go,
as he reached for her hand she pulled away whispering no.

When he turned around a tear slid down his cheek,
he just stood there speechless, forgetting how to speak.
The next few days were the hardest at home,
he truly felt he was all alone.

His dad told him that this way he had won,
his mom said 'i knew she was just another one'.
His brother said 'come on you'll be ok',
and his sisters just tried to stay away.

At school it was like his friends weren't even there,
none of them seemed to really care.
His life had no more color, just black and white,
even getting out of bed turned into a fight.

Despite his tries he couldnt make times like before,
then he decided 'i don't wanna try anymore'.
At that he tried to cut her out,
but the more he ignored her the more his feelings began to shout.

When he saw her that day he could no longer just walk by,
and before he knew it his mouth opened up and out came 'hi'.
She looked up and said 'so now we're talking? ',
he made a half-smile and kept on walking.

Everyday they talked a little more,
and everyday he began to like her a little less then before.

As the months passed by he became more and more aware,
about how its ok life's unfair,
because eventually everything becomes your past,
but its your memories that will always last.

And with that i hope you see,
not all love is meant to be.
Just hold on and don't give in,
stand tall, hold up your chin.

And believe me when i say,
the right girl will come one day.
She'll open your eyes to things you couldn't ever see.
I know this because..this is a story all about me...
