My Heart's Hurt!!!

You were supposed to be mine

The peace of mind I longed for.

My yearning for you was breathtaking.

You gave me the "green light".

Maybe I read your expressions wrong;

But I jumped aimlessly at the signs,

And collided with utter embarrassment.

The lights were red.

Deep red.

Thick as blood they were.

Oh yeah! I lost pints of blood myself.

I was beaten blue-black.

My will was crushed by your rejection.

I stopped to check myself after;

My reflection grinned so hard.

My teeth gnashed and came off.

Why did you treat me this way?

My heart, you were too quick to act.

Now my peace is gone!

Love no longer exists within.
