I am a leafless tree


Leafless Tree
 
Like a leafless tree in a still wind
 
My heart is empty, never feel love again
 
She broke my heart to pieces without a word
 
I spoke of love to her but it went unheard
 
If she had noticed would it be different now?
 
Could she have loved someone like me somehow?
 
Unpleasant to the eyes and unsteady in the brain
 
I would still have been her umbrella in the rain
 
She did not understand the way I felt inside
 
When she went away all I use to be just died
 
I offered my love to her, to it she was blind
 
She went away when another she did find
 
A cold wind blows through a leafless tree
 
Standing broken all alone just like me

Rejection is really hard to take, and there will always be that 'If only' feeling. Well composed poem, Roger that was a pleasure to read.
