The Last Ray Of Sunshine - Poem by james d nall,jr

I was walking along a desolate beach
Listening to the seabirds screech
When a thought entered my mind
I'd just seen the last ray of sunshine

Wondering where the day had went
I realized what this moment meant
A recent love of mine had gone
Leaving me feeling like someones pawn

In this game I wound up the real loser
It seemed in the end I meant nothing to her
So away from me she'd smugly went
After all my money had been spent

So again I found that I'd lived a lie
Making me wish, I could just die
But reflection sometimes makes us wiser
If nothing else, we become more of a miser

We find that love isn't always what we think
As depression causes our self-esteem to sink
The next round we swear will be different
For it seems each new love is heaven sent

When really we need to think a lot more
Before we open up our poor hearts door
Maybe one day, we'll find that ' True Love '
For that we can thank our God up above
