I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten

Poetry By: LizLew

I understand, cr@ppy title, but it's all I could come up with. And no, this is NOT for Demon. I was just remembering a bad break up.

I walk along the beach on a cool winter night,
I see the silver moon in my sight.
I close my eyes and count to ten,
I try and forget but remember you again!
You broke my heart, now get out my head,
Now all I hear are the words you said.
It's not you, it's me, and some more crap,
But the truth is, I don't want you back.
Yes it hurts now, but it'll fade,
But my heart was broken anyway.
Old scars remind me of us,
Before you turned it into dust.
Oh well, can't say I didn't expect it,
It's not like I didn't know you'd do this.
I fell for you, that's my mistake,
And it cost a load of heartache.
I close my eyes and count to ten,
And no longer here you stand.
I'm finally free from your twisted hold,
You've given back the heart you stole.
Even angels have a dark side,
And you my friend give quite the fright.
You see, I no longer wish for you to love me,
I understand we were never ment to be.
I pity you though, in a way,
How you can't feel regret or shame.
A mere pawn in fates game,
Now roll the dice and start again.
I close my eyes and count to ten,
A thought for you, never again.
