To Lose What You Love(Maybe The Last One) - Poem by Guarded Heart

To think;
I’ll never be kissed again
By those lips, never be loved again
By those hands, never be looked at
The same way again, by those eyes

Here’s what it feels like
When all that you hold dear
Is torn from you by a single sentence
And you held it so dear
That it was the center of you
And when it was ripped out
It took everything else with it
Leaving me a hollow empty shell

Such a terrible way
On such an awful choice of day
An anniversary no less
Please don’t make anymore empty promises
What’s left of me can’t take it
I’m to fragile now

I’ll never hate you
It’s not possible
After all we’ve been through
After all that I forgave you
I saw through to the real you
I love every aspect of you
I gave you all of me
Thing is, you walk away, still holding me
And you don’t want it anymore
And I am still forced to wave and cry, goodbye

I let my guard down
I fell in love
Mark my words
It will never happen again
You can only give your heart away once

I have it in my mind to give up writing entirely. I had two novels in the making
And was going to publish a poetry collaboration, but my inspiration has said good bye.
Even this piece was a struggle to write
