Breakup Poem – Desolation
Author: Gabor Timis – Copyright 2016
As soon as I saw your eyes I knew something was amiss
and my heart plunged far deep into an abyss.
Then your words started and suddenly there was pain,
the words slashing through me all the way to my brain.
As if I lifted a boulder hard and great,
I became dizzy and felt my heart ready to break.
I wanted to cry out against this cruel fate.
It is truly all over now, you and I are apart,
but it was so beautiful and sweet from the start
that this savage twist leaves me with much pain.
The aches are brutal, my emotions I can’t restrain.
Why, oh why, there is no consolation,
just a dark, empty desolation.
