Sitting here, head in hand
So tired, I can barely stand
Painful words, ricochet against the night
Heartbreak heard, a lover's mournful plight

Memories haunt me, you are everywhere I go
I loved you more than you will ever know
Looking around, I am numb
The tears threaten but won't come

Shut myself off from these feelings
Done with romantic dealings
One too many failures for me
Love, I beg of you, let me be

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Last few words: 
I wasn't concerned with meter in this, just wrote from the heart
Editing stage: 


this is what I would call an "emotive" write! I can totally relate and perhaps that's why it resonated for me. I find the last verse the most compelling and an excellent wrap up of the whole saga!
Good writing!

Ps. If this is real, I have to tell you, it does get better! I.e the pain will pass!

On the edge of not sure if things can be has been years since my last broken heart but this is different ....

Keep Writing,

"Quoth said the Raven, NEVERMORE"

Even as a man I have been there after a marriage of 35 years and finding the other half had started going out with others.
It is so hard and there are many days weeks of soul searching, blame and bad words.
Later, and I mean later they all move into a vague memory bank, where we store them as a lesson, and the things to look out for in future behaviour.
As I have said each will blame themselves no matter what, then the healing process starts, just take care that you think straight It will be hard. Loved the write, this is one way to come to grips with things also.
I will watch for your writes as usual, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

Is my defense to the whole situation...I don't want to feel whats coming next

Keep Writing,

"Quoth said the Raven, NEVERMORE"
