Just for Today

Today was the day you broke my heart

fingers on temples

chest pounding

stomach burning and you took your time

and stood apart

You prepared your nonchalance

I was caught off guard

frozen in the New York beastly spring

rain drops encouraging me to do the same

I wish you would hold me now

just this once

I wish I could make you remember our love

Can’t I convince you against this heart ache?

Just for today, can I be everything that you need?

Everything that you’ve ever wanted?

    I was just browsing through, found your poetry, and liked it. I like how personal this poem is and I like the real images – “chest pounding/ stomach burning”. I also like how you end this off with rhetorical questions – I use that in the poetry I write to. Nice job.

    Thank you, I’m glad that someone can relate. I wish there was a link back so I can check some of your poetry out. 🙂
