I'M All Alone - Poem by Violet Warren

Am I only a shadow
of this former life?
Am I but a whispering dream,
shattered at the morning's light?
Like the softest whisper
you hear me as I scream,
yet every word that escapes your lips
leaves me gasping on my knees.
Shattering now my tattered fragile soul
Only pieces of my existence
to show what was once whole.

Who gave you the right
to take away what felt so right,
what felt so strong,
that one place left where I felt that I belonged?
You hardened my heart,
you chilled my soul
with those simple words
I was left out in the darkness,
out in the cold.

I thought 'I love you' meant forever,
yet you plainly made me see
that all it took was a simple 'It's done, I'm through'
to end that happiness inside of me.
Now there's nothing left;
I'm all alone.

It feels as if I'm standing in the dark
while you are still radiating in the light.
So now I hope you know
what you've done to the soul
of that one lovesick, tragic girl
who loved you and loved you with all she had
that you ruthlessly lied with 'I love you too'.

So now it's done.
It's over and through,
and as a closing note to you:
I hope the way you hurt me hurts you now, too,
for every second, every moment,
ever single solitary day,
for making a poor girl say 'I love you'
and her meaning it in every single way.
