Star Crossed

Submitted:May 13, 2003


My first poetry submission.


I am not a professional poet, so; if my beat is off, my grammer is bad, and it's too sing-songy... I'm very sorry.

Those aren't exactly my goals when I write this. I write this because I have to. If I kept it inside, I would explode. People are cruel, and I don't need any more reminder of this if that is what is going through your head. (I will probably respond with another poem anyway... )


If you ARE an english person (English isn't exactly my first language) and would like to HELP me, do it by private messages. But don't rip me up here.


Now; about the poem.


This was written at a very rough time in my life, I was in dismay as my first love completely abandoned me. I appeared to take it all in stride at first, so as to protect her feelings, but this poem showed how hurt I really was inside.






One heart cannot make it alone

Time and time it's proven again

Feelings renewed when you're gone

When you feel it should be the end


Even though I realized

The heartache was from you,

I just couldn't let go

I just couldn't turn back

I just couldn't start anew,


Because you broken off a piece of my heart,

And made it a part of yours

Instead of both of us sharing one heart,

You seem to end up with more.


When somebody falls in love

Their hearts must be shared

But if one doesn't get enough,

That means the other doesn't care



For me it seems

That you ripped at the seams

And tore at the roots

what might have been


In my case you lied

In this you hurt me

Your words cut like a knife

and tears bled from me


I gave you a heart

Already cracked and scarred

And although you didn't know it,

You drew tears from eyes once starred


Do you know what's it's like

To cry because your heart aches

Do you know the feeling of pain

Every time my heart breaks


I looked at my friends

They only added the pain

Every one of them was happy

They only brought it up again


They were all together,

And had been more than I could count

They said \"How is it a guy like you

Could be for so long love without?\"



You once called me star-crossed

Now I call myself soul lost

Because you feel the price of love

Is too high a cost.
