Not Another Love Poem

I’ve given so much to you…

Tried in everyway to show you how much I care…

Many lonely nights I waited with the hopes you might have some time to spare…

I put my heart on the line…

Even though you never asked me to.

I let down the walls…

I dared to let you in…

But in return you gave me nothing more than the feeling of pain.

I finally decided it’s over…

No longer will I let you in…

The freedoms you once took for granted are the ones I’ll no longer give.

Not another letter will you get from me…

That tells what’s deep in my heart…

Not another poem will be written in your honor…

It’s time I move on with my life.

I’m tired of feeling only half alive without you near…

Not even a single word uttered that says you care.

Some claim it’s because you have had to be tough…

Don’t show that kind of stuff…

They claim it’s what makes you a man.

To me it’s clear to see the truth staring back at me…

It’s time I embrace the truth.

I’m not the love of your life…

I’ll never be the girl of your dream…

It’s time I stop feeding your ego..

Move on just like you did.

Stop holding on to my heart…

It’s time that it’s taken off display…

I won’t allow it to be another thing you don’t return.

So for you not another love poem…

Not another “I Love you” from me you’ll hear…

Just the sound of my footsteps as I walk out of here.
