Heartbreak Hotel - Poem by Dixon Irene

I sit here in a dark
empty room and wait for
you to turn around and
come back into my life.

It seems that I have
checked into the heartbreak hotel
and i can't leave yet
until you come back through my door.

The things that you said to me
are still running through my mind
like a roller coaster, going crazy
on the tracks.

What reason did I give,
for you to leave me with
this heartbreak? Do you
even know how bad it hurts to say your name.

People surrounding me
asking what is wrong
all I can mutter is that
my stay was very long at heartbreak hotel.

If you would just open the door
then I could be relieved of this
burden that I have been carrying since
you walked out on me.

Please don't leave me
with this hole in my heart
heal me, take me back
and promise to never leave again.
