Twisted Love Poems: The Cold Shoulder

Updated on June 9, 2013

I can’t really get to sleep tonight,

There’s important matters

Weighing heavily on my chest.

I sleep next to you every night.

Missing the times we shared,

When you saw me at my best.

I can’t help but feel like

I’m letting you down,

In each and every way,

Some nights we fall asleep

And you turn to your side,

Without a word to say.

I know you don’t mean

Anything by it,

But still it makes me sad.

I keep preparing myself

For the days

When you really start getting mad.

That’s when the fights will start,

And I know our relationship,

Will start coming to an end.

I really don’t know what I’ll do,

You weren’t just my lover.

You were my best friend.

So here I lay,

Counting the days

Till this dream is finally over.

Trying to memorize your face

Dreading the day you start,

To give me the cold shoulder.

      It's very hard to know the truth. This was more from a negative part of my mind. I'd rather get those negative thoughts out on paper than to hold them in.

      such a straight forward poem, full of sadness. It jut shows how we all can become powerless and lost for words. Even though our head is screaming out all these thoughts, but our mouth wishes to remain silent for we are unsure whether what we feel may actually be truth, or is it just our insecurity allowing us to believe that something may be coming to an end.

      touching poem, voted up.
