Somehow I can only write when angry. Oh well... XD I guess this piece is part fiction, part reality. Regardless, here it is. I am actually a little proud of this one. :)

You promised you would never leave.

But you ran, ran, ran far away to where you cannot be seen.

You picked up all your things and stole away like a cat burglar who had just thieved.

I guess you had, indeed: you took away what you always told me I would mean.

You robbed me of my value and defaced me in front of the audience,

Setting the stage like a bad actor and bringing everyone down in the scene.

I let you in and flew along in your psychotic tornado ride without repentance;

Watching the colours blur and the sounds melt and life disappear into nothing.

I felt the sounds of your words hitting ground and heard the scrape against my skin.

Case, point, rebuttal, long into the night, I thought maybe we could have been something,

But I guess that I was wrong, because you left me here in the dark, the embodiment of sin.

I remember a time where we were together, young and strong, running apart from the herds.

How did we end up here, what happened to being a Romeo and a Juliet?

And as they bang around loudly in my head, I wonder if I can ever forget those WoRds…

“My love, I’m not ready to be parted from your company just yet”.

I feel for you. ): Yeah, I COMPLETELY get how you feel, which is kind of why I wrote this. So many people feel like this and I just felt like I wanted to share it. I'm glad it got to you and you enjoyed it, and I appreciate the read and the comment. Thanks so much! :)

How in the hell did I miss this? =(
I haven't been on Booksie for a while, but I would get email updates... =S
Anyway, I'm glad I read this poem, it's good. Especially the emphasis using bold and italics was something special to me.
But reading poetry about heartbreak and failing relationships makes me scared to get into a relationship myself, to be honest. It's not going to stop me, though. No way in hell.
It was great reading one of your poems again. So thank you. =)

Well, well, well. Look who thought he'd be sneaky! I should have known it was you. :P Pardon my not replying right away. Thanks for reading this! :) I don't mean to scare you out of love... XP Just because I suck at it (most of the time) does not by any stretch mean that you will. :) I made an effort to use font change this time, seeing as formatting isn't my forte. I'm thrilled you noticed! :D Thank YOU for reading and commenting!
