It's real name is Wasteland, but it said someone already had that name. :(
It's just really how I was heartbroken by a boy that I still love and what he left me with, a wasteland of love.

You Left

How could you just step right out

Out of my life

Smash my heart under your shoe

As you walk away

You saw me cry that day

Your dark eyes watched

Watched as my heart melted

Broke apart

As you lead the way

A way I couldn’t follow

Because you’d be to far to touch

To kiss, to hold

You left

Leaving me behind

Thinking you would love me forever

Thinking I had your heart

You had mine

Feeling foolish to even dream you could love me

Foolish that you would think of me

I guess you thought me foolish too

You never called

Never spoke of the love

The love we had

You gave up as I held tighter

Scared to let you go

To let this go

This love we shared

It turned to hate quickly

The day you left all the love we ever shared

In the dust, on the ground

My heart pounded, dropped

Cracked and shattered

I tried to hold tightly to it

To bound it to my body

The more I read your words

The more I felt it slip

Day by day it grew emptier then before

An endless nothing

My wasteland of love lost

And never found

To pour out your feelings is good therapy and with you, the poetry really is first class. Loss of a young love is always hard but it helps you grow and move on. Well done.

Amazing. I've never experienced it before, yet I felt as though I know how it feels like. :)
