Did You?

 Did you ever think of me when I was home alone?

Did I ever cross your mind when you weren't home?

Did you ever want to hold me, just because I needed you there?

Did you try show me that you loved me, or even that you cared?

Did you ever see the pain and tears you caused me over the years?

Did you ever soothe my heart or try to calm my fears?

Did you notice my heart, the one that you broke?

Did you see my agony, as my dreams went up in smoke?

Did you think about me, when out with your friends?

Did you even notice it was coming to an end?

Did you ever love me, I doubt you ever did?

Did you see the hurt on my face when lied, time and time again?

So now I'm left to wonder what it all really meant,

the the time we spent together, the time I wished we'd spent.

The love, the lies, the pain, what was it all for?

I wonder if you feel it now, now that we're apart.

Did you notice I was gone when you walked in the door?

Did you read the note I left saying I can't take anymore?

Did you notice there was no one there, the one that really cared?

Did I really ever matter to you or was I really never really there?

Hi Chris

Read and appreciated. Thanks for sharing! I also write out my feelings. Great way to make sense of it all. Sometimes just too many thoughts are coursing through ones mind. To stop some of the chaos I write. Sometimes I blog depends on the mood I'm in.

Kind Regards

My dearest reader, again thank you for your comment. I am so happy you enjoy poetry..it is from the heart, an expression of all that we hold dear. Painful, sensual, and filled with a longing for understanding.

warmest regards,

Gosh, how do you mend a broken heart after it has been broken? This is a wonderful poem, and we all feel terrible when it happens to us. The period after is one in which we reflect on cause and origins and even repeated events, and how we can "fix" some things. But in the end we are all human and still we risk things for love of another person. As time passes, it gets a little easier to deal with it, although the pain doesn't go away. Interesting hub.

Great poem, of reflection! So much of the time, men (some women), don't realize the good they had in a relationship, until they split up. To bad it hurts so much, when things don't work out. Great Job:)
