Ramblings Of The Broken Hearted - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Ramblings Of The Broken Hearted
Date: January 8,2016

It never tore you apart
Never crippled your spirit, broke your heart
You moved right on without a blink
Unconcerned with what I think
But I still hear the whispering sighs
They sing to me like lullabies
You turned a cheek, forgot my name
I haven't been able to do the same
Dreams rewinding in my head
Midnight whispers haunt my bed
I just can't seem to turn the page
Or forget the fire…or the rage
I've searched for you a thousand times
Screamed my pain in muddled rhyme
I guess I'm not as cool as you
I can't walk away, the way you do
I'll always yearn to hold your hand
It's something you can't understand
We're different people, you and I
You're quick to leave, I stay and cry
I tried my best to understand
Why you can't love, why I can
I guess I placed you on a shelf
Much higher than I did myself
You saw me in your looking glass
Always seeing second class
And just as I have always known
I turned around and you were gone
I often sit and wonder why
I search for stars that pass me by
I've made this bed of my mistakes
I live the burden of all that aches
I know you'll never fall apart
You don't have that kind of heart
I should have seen it long ago
I guess I didn't want to know
It seems I'll always know this pain
When midnight whispers call your name
