Left Alone

Crept into the night
A shadow of myself
Hiding... all alone
Afraid, in need of help.


A "once-so-innocent" girl
That's too good to be true
Changed...
Because of you.


Slowly, she walked out the dark
The lips shyly smiled
Oh, so young...
To be broken.


She can't even remember
Since when she gave up her dreams
Follow her heart
And chose you.


The sound of the heart breaking
Blinding the night
The "once-so-innocent" girl
Is now out of sight.


Silently, she crept into the night
To hide... she's left alone
Scared and bleeding
To face again her own.

So sad! I believe all things can result in good, however. Your lost innocence will help the blossoming woman become wiser. Do try to reel some of your innocence back in, tho. You'll need it to help you see the good in everything - no matter what happens, there's always a good side. Whether it be lessons learned or to steer clear of short men (ha ha), good is just as present as bad! Even more so if you look for it!

Beautiful poem. You truly have a way with words, Unknown!

Voted up and beautiful!

Bravewarrior got it just right, so sad, I can almost touch the pain.

Sometime we have to go through the fire before we can be reborn into the people we are destined to become, hopefully wiser and stronger for it.

best regards

Very poignant words..society has become so cruel and left so many to deal with so much. Innocence taken at an early age carries a pain throughtout life...thanks for sharing your thoughts..

Unknown, it could be what you're thinking, or that many have a Napolean complex and try to make up for their size by acting like bigshots. Or just plain a---oles!

This is a very typical experience of all "innocent girls". Who among us women of today didn't pass this stage? Girl, that's normal if it was your own, but if it only reflects your writing talent, this is awesome job! Congratulations for pulling through, anyway!

Hi TOBUSINESS..How are you? yes, because at the process of going through the fire, we become who we are destined to become! Greta, thanks soo much!!!

Hi AZLAN..nice to see you back here again. We may have different sotires but we share the same pain.. Don't force yourself to forget her. Just take one step at a time, keep yourself busy with things around you. Then one day, you'll realized, you've moved on. The sun may set but the promise of a new day is coming.

Thank you for the comment KJ force.. When a person falls in love the first time, they think the world was on their hands. Then when they got their heart broken, they would think the world is over... :)

Hello Ma'am Lita.. Yes it is indeed..girls falling inlove for the first time..got their heart broken... very normal situation. but it takes a lot of courage to go out again in the dark after you are left alone with your heart broken to pieces.

Thank you soo much!!!!

Voted up and awesome. It's always the worst feeling when you give you're heart to someone who doesn't deserve it. However it shouldn't stop anyone from loving again because the next person will be deserving. Powerfully emotional poem. Well done.

Reality of relationship that we sometimes can't control and understand... The best thing to do is always be ready -prepare ourselves for the most unexpected things to happen. And sometimes don't fully trust our heart..

Finally, share everything to God. Only Him can broaden our minds and lighten our life's load. Thanks for sharing. This is so wonderful and beautiful as always.

A very sad and emotional poem. Most women go through this... having both their innocence and their hearts stolen only to be left alone and heartbroken. But don't let this stop you from falling in love again.

Time heals and someone special will come along

Beautiful poem and I love the form.

It is the worst kind of pain that you had so eloquently expressed here. One which I, and surely many, are able to relate to from our own personal experiences. I know this pain. Well written indeed.

Brilliant work!

unknown spy 4 years ago from Neverland - where children never grow up. Author

maybe, that's what i'm thinking too. But I already gave him my whole heart, totally whole heart. And I don't have any to give now to someone else. I didn't get it back.
