The Void

I gave you my heart.

I expected tender love and care,

But when I asked it back from you,

I knew it wasn't there.


For it had fled to another;

To someone that I don't even know.

We used to be so close,

But the distance started to grow.


I knew that once I heard of him-

Our spark would go away.

Then I started to think that it wasn't there to stay.


It simmered for a while-

Your love had filled a hole.

You and I both know;

That shouldn’t have been our goal.


Your heart is kept by vow,

You’re as lonely as you can be.

I tried to make you mine-

But you aren’t the one for me.

    Awwww...sad.. :( I can relate to this poem. I wrote a poem recently called Into the Void, but it is soooo different from your poem here. Haha. Anyway, great one and keep up the good work. Always, Laura

    I find I am relating to way too many poems tonight. I guess it's a good and a bad thing, but this poem is nice. It hits too close to home but poetry should create a reaction in us, that's my opinion anyway. Nice poem.

    Nicely written. Your poems seem to travel on the path of maturity. Way to go
