The tears fall down
Why have you done this to me?
I gave you my heart on a platter
I gave you my soul as open as it could be
You know my everything, you know me
And what do I get in return?
For a once in a lifetime love
That has vanished in a minute

My words don’t make sense to me
My choice wasn’t the perfect one
Why do I deserve this ordeal?
I thought you were the one
My heart seems to be crying
In its own monotonous tone
For a love that vanishes
Is worse than being alone

My head is strangely calm
Away from all this chaos
My heartache continues to haunt my soul
Slowly fading into the dirt
Am I just like you or worse?
I can’t feel anymore
I just want to drift away and be ignored
Humanity is not with me anymore

My body is about to explode
All the tears have burnt my eyes
I cannot take this anymore
Why did I deserve that lie?
The heart does not forget
Nor can it remember
For as strong as it appears
It can be crushed forever


‘Tears’ is a heart-break love poem.

It all started with the protagonist falling in love with a beautiful girl. She was exactly like him in every aspect. They were meant to be. Destiny had it planned all along. Now, the protagonist felt a certain feeling called happiness.

There is just a sudden twist of events and the protagonist now faces a disturbing time. He has lost his beloved one to the disbelief of time. He is heartbroken and the pain kept hitting him every second.
He just cannot breathe anymore. The planet has conspired against him. This loss has destroyed his precious heart. He cannot stop thinking about her.

He needs to realize the truth but he is just confused out of this world. He questions everything. Everything.

This poem explores the mind of a heartbroken troubadour.

I leave you with some of my favorite lines taken from Robert Frost’s poem:

The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.


Have a nice day and stay tuned for more poetry!
