Blue - A Poem About Loss

Updated on February 6, 2012



This poem was written after splitting up from my first long term partner. It was the first time I wrote any sort of poetry with the mindfullness of using this media as a form of letting go.


I sit alone

In a room of Blue

A place where once

I sat with you.

The room feels cold

Without your warmth

An empty space

Which once was full.

The things I did

I know where wrong

To make them right

Just can't be done.

My love for you

Is all I have

To lose it now

I could not bare.

You tell me that

The pain will fade

Perhaps it's something

I don't deserve.

The love I feel

For you is strong

The time apart

Is hard and long.

The love you feel

You say will fade

Because of the

Mistakes I've made.

The ring you wear

We bought in the sun

Has changed it's place

And counts for none.

That band of gold

Should mean so much

But now the meaning

Has lost it's touch.

You tell of the

Times when you

Warned me you

Would carry this through.

And now you've

Carried those warnings out

You've left our home

There is no doubt.

I'd love for you

To return here home

But that decision

Is yours alone.

To leave the home

You had to be strong

I'm hoping that

It won't be for long.

What you've done

Has made me see

What's been wrong

And how it should be.

It must be right

For you to return

But it all feels wrong

without you home.

      Beautiful and heart-wrenching. Understand the hurt from both sides. Hope the pain is less now. Voted up

      Very heartfelt...thank you for sharing this poem. I understand a bit how you feel...though it was me who had to leave someone who was dear to me.

      Voted up and beautiful.
