I wasn't enough for him. I waas just a puppet, easy to manipulate and easy to break.

A flame, an inferno of rage.

It dwindles, fades.

You will remember, but maybe not.

But you felt it once. That

Anger! Powerful and destructive.

A villain, wielding a sword.

Tearing through your chest, you heart.

But it will heal. That

Guilt was ignorant.

It could never understand.

He changed you, but maybe not.

He wanted to. That

Pain! You weren't enough.

She was more. She was pretty.

But cold, cruel as winter.

You were autumn.

All the leaves fell. Dead.

This poem is also very well written, and simply amazing!
I know how it feels to be the one left alone, and you managed to portray those feelings, but added to them the beauty of your imagery. Brilliant! I loved it!
