Heavy Hearted Goodbye - Poem by Crystal Pierce

I stopped breathing that day.
My heart fell out of my chest and into my hands where I dropped it.
I stomped on it and covered every crevice with dirt and cement.
Your lack of emotion towards the subject pushed me back away from you.
I loved you and I wanted you to stay.
But whatever you were looking for I wasn't it.
Our time together though was heaven sent.
I'm going to be here but I'm not going to be blue.
My heart is not hardened and my feelings aren't crushed.
I made it without you and I'm going to do it again.
But my heart is dirty with pain
It's that was the day I stopped breathing and loving you.

    i'd say...and I dropped it .............oh, that could be messy! // i only 'recently' realized the difference between 'cement' and 'concrete':
    cement is actually an ingredient of concrete. Concrete is basically a mixture of aggregates and paste. The aggregates are sand and gravel or crushed stone; the paste is water and portland cement. (to continue) ..

    Hi Chryssa,
    A very emotional writing.
    But, life is not thus. We have to move on from any catastrophic. We can not afford to allow it to stop.
    Quote:

    I stopped breathing that day
    No, Chryssa, breath in breath out. Come out of the bad times, like a butterfly out of its cocoon.
