A melancholy poem about a boy I used to love...


Your Place in My Heart
In my heart there is a place,
Where your picture sits beside a vase.
Cracked, tattered, and torn,
Frame and photo look forlorn.
But once upon a time,
Your words built every line.
The lines on the wall are bare and sparse,
Not continuing on their course.
Cracked, tattered and torn it may be,
And it’s power’s kept me from being free.
The strong and fatal pull,
Of love’s tragic emotional lull.
The hardest part is knowing,
That I’ll never see you smiling.
But the funny thing is,
I can’t quite remember that smile of his.

tests, some are meant to pass, some, to fail, and some other are for endurance purposes, to make you tougher, used to it, for life carries on creating new wounds to bear and healing the old ones with times, but i know one thing and you might also too, some wounds never heal, and even worse are those which get healed but leave the scars so as whenever your gaze falls upon them, it grows greener, and the worst, it hurts..

Just voted for you!
I think this isn't your BEST poem but it's certainly really good! It reminds me of a song I once heard (okay, not once. I sung it in choir) and it was really nice =)
"In every heart there is a room. A sanctuary safe and sound." < 3
