Poem of the day : The breakup 

Once upon a time,

you lit up my life.

My days were zestier than lime,

with long evening drives.

Yet those happy days

ceased to exist,

just as you crushed

my heart to bits.

I fell into the shadows,

my heart, hollow—

for in the darkness

I can never wallow.

The light in my life,

shut off by a strife,

that seperated us forever.

Torn apart and broken,

I hobble on this path of life,

half dead, half alive—

gasping for breath,

but there’s no one in sight.

The shadows cascade in front of me,

my path is unknown.

My vulnerable, trembling hands,

clinging on to that final glimmer of hope

wishing that you’d return…

Even though I know

…that would never happen…
