What Becomes Of A Broken Heart - Poem by Raven Keller

You left me floating in eternity
Once again returned to the darkness I dread
Your carefully woven lies corroded
Decaying in this heart of mine
This heart you charmed
This heart you shattered

I called to you, but too far you had strayed
I reached for your hand, but coldness replaced your touch
I crave for your love, but your heart was complete
Bejeweled with brighter gems than I

Yet I remain unadorned
For the whisper of hope that haunts me
Maybe tomorrow, you will return to my side
Maybe tomorrow, you won’t let me die
Maybe tomorrow, you will finally be mine
Maybe tomorrow, you’ll finally see
My heart is as broken as yours is complete

    Good to see you use 'than I' rather than 'than me' as so many people would. That is what I am a stickler about...proper grammar.

    Raven - Thanks for the kind words regarding 'Destiny's Child'. I also see the same sadness in this poem, and feel we must be kindred spirits. Beautifully written. Linda (Report) Reply
