Tears Of Blood For My Valentine - Poem by Razorblade Kiss

I always thought Valentines Day was a joyous one.
Couples getting together in acts of true love,
But this year is different.
My heart was broken.
All by one with no heart of his own
It was a joke. A ploy to impress his friends
It started as innocent as a newborn kitten.
One date, with chocolates of course,
Then as the days went on, we went on a few more dates.
I began to fall in love. I thought he returned it,
But those were just petty thoughts of a young girl.
Three months had past and we were still a couple,
We were even going to the Valentines Day dance together.
But just two days before that blessed day celebrated by couples everywhere.
He said it all in front of his friends. “I only dated you as a joke.”
And as they laughed I fought hard to keep back the tears, but they wouldn’t stay.
I ran off, and as I ran they called things like, “freak” and “loser”
For those two days I cried and tried to forget, but I couldn’t.
Today is now Valentines Day, and as my parents are leaving to go to dinner.
I wish them the best wishes.
I watch them pull out of the drive and I waved to them a last goodbye.
Tears begin to fall again as I head to my room.
“I will get back at him! ” I think to myself as I climb the stairs
I take the picture of him and I go to sit on my bed,
As I make the first cut, I wince and think, “Should I be doing this? ”
But just then a picture of him at the dance with his friends makes me cut deeper
Soon it is so deep that there is no turning back,
With the little strength I have left, I take two drops of blood and mark them like tears on my cheek.
I finally lay down, to sleep my last sleep.
The next day at school the announcements will read,
“Last night at about five o’clock a student took her life. All that was found was a picture, and written on the back it said.”
“These are the tears I cry for you! ”

    I greet the burden of your soul
    and wonder if your heart is whole
    when one can hold it out to share
    beware of love, beware.

    From all this wretched hardship take
    a lesson for your wisdom's sake
    the future holds its burden's share
    beware of love, beware.

    A last and thoughtful parting word
    to one whose broken dreams are heard
    take comfort in the future near
    where you can love without the fear.

    Fear not to love, Fear not.

    Don't worry- I know how it feels. Just because some guys are jerks, don't lose the faith; some day you'll meet the right gu and he'll be well worth the wait! Keep up the good work- this is a beautiful poem! :) (Report) Reply

    It's a tear jerker. Guys can be creul
    and love can hurt. But they keep
    telling me 'better to be hurt by love, than
    to not have loved at all'
    Much love, Gaurded Heart
