This is a poem I wrote some time last year that I found. It isn't very good but I thought I might as well post it on here. It's written in the POV of a melancholic man who after a year is still getting over the fact that he and his girlfriend broke up. Anyway it's pretty crap so I apologise if you claw your eyes out after reading it....:D

I remember, remember that pristine winters evening,

With you, the snowflakes dancing around us,

Our laughter radiating through the night.

And then, kissing.

Kissing like it was the last and first time we ever would,

Sitting at the crackling fire thinking time thrived around us,

Eternity and forever were our best friends.

Funny, it seems I was mistaken.

This year it’s colder.

Bitterly cold.

Even that warm crackling fire seems harsh and uninviting,

Every snowflake that lands on my cheek feels like acid,

Burning through my skin leaving me with pain and memories of you.

A wave of melancholy hits me as I turnto see a happy couples ona bench,

Completely smitten, enveloped with passion and care.

I have to wrestle myself from smashing their joy,

Telling them it doesn’t last,

Because that’s what love is like you know.

One moment, it is a branch covered in lush green leaves, vibrant and full of life.

Or a bear tree covered in fluffy white snow like a comforting blanket

And then the branch snaps and falls to the ground.

Stuck at rock bottom, and there is definitely no way that branch is coming back up.

I am the branch.

The branch is me.

Rock. Bottom.
