The empty void that cannot be filled
The sweet and bitter sorrow
Knowing that things just simply won't
Get any better tomorrow

The feeling that makes you want to scream
Until the bloody day is done
As you throw those love letters away
One by one

Canít forget the good times
Canít pretend the fun was all a lie
Canít wish I didnít remember
Because it hurts when he walks by

Reminiscing all the while
The laughs, the smiles, the secrets
Memories and hopes shattered
While my broken heart still frets

Standing here all alone
Youíd think the pain would dull
But singing all the songs in the world
These thoughts reverberate against my skull

Seems like itís been forever
My soul wonít seem to mend
Sometimes I wish Iíd go numb
Sometimes I wish my life would end

No light at the end of this tunnel
Pitch black, all I can see
Wonder when this feeling will go
If Iíll ever run free

Free of the guilt, the shame
Free of the rejection
Free to be a butterfly
No longer under your inspection

You know, I know
That time will always heal
Thereíll be a sweet end
My heart will be yours to steal
I think most of us have felt this way, at some point or another, right? I dunno, I just felt like writing about it.

Wow, I'm floored that since I wrote this angst-filled poem in high school eight years ago, 803 people have read it. That's 100 people a year. Thank you so much. I never though a poem written by me would be read by 803 people. Breakups still feel this way, but the person this was written about is a distant memory. It's funny - time really does heal all wounds!

Ur rite bout most ppl feelin this at one point. Wats wierd is tht everyone thinks love hurts but it's actually the rejection and pain of NOT being loved tht hurts, y'know?

Beautiful poem. And I think you're right. Everyone feels this way at one time or another. And it never seems to end. Wonderful poem about a painful time we all experience at one point in life.
