This is a poem of a real issue I am still trying to cope and heal from an ex, who instead of breaking up with me honestly - initially told me that we were just going to have a six month break to fix our relationship....Only to pay for dumping me in an expensive hotel from his truck and having his surprise, overnight fiance rub their new engagement in my face by personally contacting me via facebook (when I didn't even know she existed) when they were both living miles away together in his truck. Hope this helps others. Thank you.

"TRAGIC MISTAKE OF NATURE..."
 
I was the fire with hope in my eyes
You were the cold water who turned to ice
I was the truth seeker, and you sought disguise
 
You love the new, the blank and the empty
To fill with the same delusions you sent me
 
Once I peered in, and saw through the lie
Your apathy grew, trying to spread within
Setting traps, hoping my love would die
Like cancer before it could even begin
 
All I ever hoped for and wanted was your love
I sought to enlighten, but you sought to corrupt
You deprived and manipulated until we broke up
But your mask shattered the day your fiance fucked up
 
Kept me in the dark, with the lies you chose
And my fire burned out slow, as my heart bled
You said you wanted to go where the river flows
As I just wanted to throw away this life I led
 
So, I leaped into the river, to save what was lost
Choosing loyalty, when you chose to drown me at any cost
 
But I stepped out of the river, the moment I knew
For rivers only move and flow towards a fall
The day you fell for her, for what's empty and new
You'll hit rock bottom when you thought you had it all.
 
Yet, I still cared - flooding eyes followed your move
Crying my own falls - still worrying over you
Knowing you'd ignore every pain that ensued
 
But now you can't hear my call
For water falls and heat rises
When the earth breaks your fall 
You'll look up to where the sky is
 
Too late, it's over now, for everything becomes still
Alone, cold and dead inside - like a winter's chill
 
Your callous mind, empty eyes
Heartless, cold and petrified
Fallen, dead and dying inside
Snow veined and terrified
 
For you can't sit still, nor be alone
You must keep flowing on your own
That's when you'll remember my flames
The day you saw the sky, calling my name
 
Repeating history - of use, abuse and destroy
In the name of someone new, your new best toy
 
Because you believed moving in circles was a well rounded life
That's why you pushed,  while your new love held the knife
 
For I am fire, as I cannot ever truly burn
But you'll freeze into ice when winter turns
The cold of a dead fish still, warmth spurned
 
That's why you broke your last love back when I was new
For you always were in the river; a dying fish on the move
 
A heart beat with no purpose, as it very well should
Now beats still out of habit, simply because it could
 
But wanting to be extraordinary is such an ordinary desire
That you thought being special would make your journey higher
 
Always selfishly seeking for yourself whatever is greater
Why else would this poem be titled: "Mistake of Nature?"
