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. :)
