You left me.
After so many tears cried.
I'm done.
I'm over you.
I'm down to my last tear.

So many tears cried,

My auburn eyes drained of all color.

So many stitches in my heart,

My love vanishing in the blink of an eye.

 

.

 

On the edge of the chipped window I sit,

Below me the lives of hundreds stir.

Only I feel the pain of losing,

And finding out that the other had won.

 

.

 

I wish to fall everlastingly,

To have these endless tears stop.

But no matter how hard I try,

They run down my stained cheeks.

 

.

 

Stained with the hope I never had,

Stained with the love that was thrown away by your hand.

Stained by the blood I bled eternally,

Stained by the tears you made me cry.

 

.

 

These painful images that run in and out of my mind,

Shine in my eyes like a movie.

People read that movie like a book,

Still alone.

 

.

 

Cold rushes of air skim across my neck,

Like you hand once did.

The wind kisses me,

Like your lips once did.

 

.

 

I try so hard to erase you from my mind,

But you keep coming back like a bad dream.

I’m living this horrible nightmare,

And through it all these tears still fall.

.

 

But the tears have finally stopped,

Vanished from all sight.

This blood has stopped bleeding in my heart,

Encased back in the stitches that seal that tear.

 

.

 

So many tears cried,

My auburn eyes drained of all color.

This hole in my heart finally healed,

And so I’m down to my last tear.
