All That Was Lost

All That Was LostSVH


I’m tired of trying, tired of crying

Deep down inside you knew I’ve been dying

Im honest with you, I’m not even lying

But my dedication to you was the only thing you’re fighting

I loved your face, I loved your laugh

I adored your eyes, how you would look back

Smile, hug, and tell me it’s all okay

But suddenly you left me at the end of the day

A final goodbye I hadn’t the chance to say

Cause all you were doing was pushing me away

I became your enemy, on you features a snarl

Every single time we talked; a quiet quarrel

I never expected you wanting it this way

Not wanting me to stick around, or to stay

I regret trusting you, I abhor your attitude

Your anger and deception was really quite rude

At the same time, I wanted you to say

Oh, my dear lover, my love towards you isn’t a game

I pushed back, I struggled, I raged and I fought

The feelings and emotions and inside that you taught

The tears of misery, the shame on your face

Was all just an act, calling me a waste

I’m sorry I lied, I’m sorry to say goodbye

But all in all, you don’t care, so why should I?

well it kept my interest, the ending didn’t disappoint me, you showed what this ‘love without tomorrow’ was all about efficiently.
not sure about this line:

and inside that you taught

is there a typo there? thanks for sharing


There’s so much sadness shared in this poem, I felt the honest and open vulnerability, which left me feeling the writers situation.
