Breaking Us - A Love Poem

Updated on March 20, 2014

Kiss me under the moonlight

That lives deep, in the spacious sky

Hold me close, to your body

Before you tell me goodbye...

Then in my eyes, will you see?

As you search, so high and low

Looking for more excuses

Of why you’re letting me go…

With your fingertips, gently wipe

The tears, upon my face

This is how you want it

I’m to be replaced…

In your mind, remember us

Memories, so dear and true

Get lost for just a moment

Then break my heart in two…

Set aside your ego, without fear

Your pain, to be self-nursed

Why I stand here wounded

By your plan so well-rehearsed…

In your soul, perhaps sorrow

Have you washed it away?

As you watch me drowning

It’s not enough to make you stay...

Go ahead, you’ve come this far

Convinced, it’s for the best

Then why can’t you let go?

I’m pinned against your chest…

Please don’t, take another kiss

Or speak, there is no time to talk

It’s time for me to leave

And for you to watch me as I walk…

      Hi SusieQ42 & always exploring- Thanks for taking the time to read my poem, I appreciate it! This poem is very sad, but it's something we can all relate to. When I wrote this, it took me back to my teenage years, many years ago :)The heartache of loving and losing someone, but most of all, the courage to overcome the pain and move on.
