My Bitter End - Poem by Carike Klokow

You left me alone in the rain on a Saturday night,
screaming your name I held on tight
to the piece of cotton I tore from your shirt,
like a handfull of thorns everything hurt.
Watching you walk away my heart sank deep,
I fell to the ground and started to weep

On my knees I sat and cried,
for hours I sat alone outside.
Screaming your name, I swore unashamed.
and when all was black and my eyes blood shot
my head was spinning and I felt like a sot.
I eventually got up and stumbled along
and everything I thought I knew felt so wrong

My heart is shattered and I'm in pain,
cold and alone I walk in the rain
with this broken heart and millions of tears cried
I suddenly realized that I was dead inside.
Without your love and not one friend
my easiest way out was my end.

    End of the pain, that's how it should be, move on!

    Coming back to the poem, you've captured the pain really well!
