My friend and fabulous feminist, Dannielle Miller of Enlighten Education http://www.enlighteneducation.com and author of ‘The Butterfly Effect’ and ‘The Girl with the Butterfly Tattoo’, is working on her third book and asked me if I could write a super sappy break-up poem. Here’s the first draft – I think I can do
better worse …
super sad sucky love poem
I thought we would be together forever,
but it wasn’t to be.
Instead, I sit here with my cats
swallowing whole blocks of chocolate
while knives fly into my heart because
I never thought we’d part.
The promises we made
that you could never keep.
Counting on you was something I should never have done,
but I did and now you’re gone.
My heart aches for your touch
and your kisses that I loved so much.
The tears won’t stop and I cannot tell
what is heaven and what is hell.
I don’t know how and I don’t know why
You left me alone until I die.
I think of the times we were together,
always believing it would be forever.
