What I Lost When You Left
I Remember the Times
I want to dedicate this poem to cgetch and thank her for her words and inspiration. If you want to enjoy a hubber with a talent for the written word go to her hub.
As I flip through the old pictures of the time before
I remember the laughter, the smiles and more
It was the time of us, isn't it strange
the steamy windows, the rain, the good times they range.
In my head I think, were there ever good times ?
were you just an escape, conjured in my mind.
It stings and burns my feelings, I find.
The slow ache and burning turns my heart blood red
as it's slowly ripped apart, torn to shreds.
Although you hurt me, I still wish you the best
to get away from the memories, for me that is rest
Every fiber of me, and the deepest depths of my soul
tell me to go back no matter how cold
But I have smartened up and I remember the pain
of the hurt and the sorrow, I feel when it rains.
So as i move forward, I still look back
but I am now strong, my resolve you won't crack.
The ground has been trampled, I must leave you behind
with the ghost of the footprints, that is all you will find.
my heart is, What I lost when you left
but something i gained was my self respect.
