The Break-Up - Poem by Harry J. Couchon Jr

'I don't love you anymore'
She says as she avoids your embrace
'Get out' she screams pointing to the door
But there are tears streaming down her face

Throw your things in an old suitcase
Remembering how her love used to be
Feel the tears on your own face
Say to yourself, there's no love for me

She stares past you as you walk out the door
Down the stairs and out to the street
Still it is her you always will adore
Her, and her love that was so sweet

Walking down the street, crying aloud
Wondering how love could go so wrong
People pointing, attracting a crowd
You stop sobbing and try to be strong

But being strong is harder than it seems
With her love, also went your hope
She shattered your life and killed your dreams
You don't know if you'll ever be able to cope

The days pass but the pain still grows
Till that fateful morning when you awake
And say to yourself, if that, s how love goes
You'll never again make that mistake

And just as your life gets back on track
The doorbell rings and she's standing there
Crying 'please, please take me back'
You almost say yes but you don't dare

Loving her again would only cause pain
You tell her 'I'm sorry but no'
Crying, she runs out into the rain
Still, you're sad to see her go
