    Tears To Spare

    In the eyes of someone else I look like I've been torn apart,
    I know when I stayed with you it wasn't very smart.
    You broke my heart and tore it in two,
    I knew it was too great just too good to be true.
    I cry so much my eyes sting and are red,
    I cry so much I mostly wish I were just dead.
    These tears that I cry are tears of pain,
    Like my heart has been run over by speeding train.
    You'll one day learn what you've done to me,
    You'll one day learn just you wait and see.
    My tears that I have had to spare for you,
    Will one day haunt and smother you.
    I never did anything to deserve such heartache,
    I never thought my heart could break.
    As much as you tore it into pieces and ripped it apart,
    Because I gave it to you from the start.
    I trusted you and and gave you my all,
    Then like a fool I didn't catch myself fall.
    So deeply in love I was with you,
    What I didn't see was you were never true.
    So here's to you and your true love,
    Where I was never meant and didn't fit like a glove.
    Here's to the tears i had to spare,
    Here's to the places I never thought I could be there.
    That's to the tears I had to shed,
    That's to the times I always wished I were dead.
    My tears that were spared are no longer there,
    I no longer have any tears to spare.

    Love spells wonder in many different ways. It may also spell doom in other ways. Great job! Very nicely written. Cheers!

    Hello Cherise. This is a very well written piece. I see why it won. Congratulations. I'm starting to really understand how something that sounds so bad can sounds so good.

    A fine and beautiful piece. It sounds as if it comes strait from the heart. This is the first out of all your poems that I will read.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
