False HeartWhy is it where my heart should be..False Heart4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It feels so empty..
Forever without your love.
Yet you still toy with it..
Hiding behind I don't knows
Giving me false hope that you will take me back
Why do you play this game with me still
I thought you moved on
At least until
You started acting like this
Never ForgetLittle hands, little toesNever Forget6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Little eyes, and little nose
Perfection in all you were to be
The angel you were to me
You never did see the light of day
Never learned how to play
Allergic to bees
We will never know if you would have been
Will never guess what gave you your first grin
The laughter you could have shared
The pain you might have had to bear
The shine in your eyes, what color?
When would you have called me mother?
Chances to dive in the water and learn to swim
Or get in a fight and get kicked out of gym.
Nothing like that would come your way
Not matter how hard I could have prayed
Forever I could have held you to my heart
Not let go, never have to part
Things happen, of this I know
Still, the pain refuses to go
Tomorrow you would have been four years old
And tonight, I wish for a heart thats cold
Numb me to the memories I cannot have
Apply to my broken heart, a healing salve.
Never forget the you that I cant see
Never forget all you meant to me.
