Today was the day you broke my heart
fingers on temples
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. 🙂
