7/3/21 – Poetry

The next time someone breaks your heart,

I hope you think of me

And all the heartache you’ve caused me over the years

I hope you’re riddled with regret as you plead with karma to lessen the agony you feel

And as you lie awake at night,

I hope the pain becomes so unbearable that you do your drugs in an attempt to cope

The first time you broke my heart,

I cried a river over you

I questioned my worth and lost my sanity

I wondered how someone could pretend to love me so well

And how it was so easy for you to choose her over me

The second time you broke my heart, I felt numb

How stupid could I be to give you another chance to disappoint me again?

The last time you broke my heart, I was devastated

Girls like you make me feel like I never want to love again

But,

If loving you is wrong I don’t want to be right

I would have moved mountains and walked across water for a piece of your love

Breaking myself

So that you’d see

Your love was all I need

And even when you caused me to bleed,

I’d bandage myself up in hopes you’d realize…

It’ll always be you
