Why

How could you not see?
How could you not hear?
My shattered heart’s beat
The drop of a tear

You gave up so much
But couldn’t see
What you made me miss:
Being free

You picked me up
So you could crush me down
You chained me with a lock
Underwater I couldn’t drown

You showed me the stars
Then told me I couldn’t have them
Because I’m the air inside jars
Stifled and grim

You told me I was stupid
But also not to cry
You told me I was just a little kid
But that I might get by

You taught me not to care
That maybe I wasn’t human
This was something I could bear
Because I couldn’t run

You didn’t care
But said you did
You weren’t aware
Of how I hid

But how could you not see?
But how could you not hear?
My shattered heart’s beat
The drop of a tear

I like ur poem. It just shows how complex the subject of love is. How fragile the heart is, yet strong at the same time. We must hold ourselves strong. Even in the darkest of times, such as your poem says. Lovely.

OMG! I could so relate to everything in that poem.

Your poem is awesome. It kinda makes me wanna tear up and cry a little. LOL

I wrote a poem few months ago similar to this one, asking how can the guy I loved so much not see the hurt he was causing me to endure.

This is amazing!

*gasp* so rhythmical!

I could never get the hang of rhyming poems…(I envy you)

Despite the fact that I’ve never really like poems that talk about broken love….even though they are very expressive. I like yours…the rhyme won me over.

Aye…keep writing…your style is intriguing.

Later
