So this is it?
Itís over?
We go our separate ways?
Thereís nothing more that we can do?
Thereís nothing we can say?
"We did our best."
"Gave it our all."
Is this what you want to hear?
But this canít account,
or try to heal
my heart and all its fear.
Iíve loved you from the day we met.
Youíve had my heart since then.
Yet now youíve gone, thrown it away.
Tell me, what was my final sin?
Was it something I said or did?
Something I canít make right?
Have I not loved you with all my heart?
Told you so each day and night?
And now you say itís not me at all.
Itís me who shouldnít want you.
After all this time, you tell me this now?
What did you expect me to do?
I gave you every part of me,
even parts that Iíve never seen.
And now youíve gone and changed it all.
Youíve thrown away my dreams.
Just so you know, I have no regrets.
We canít make up where we lack.
Iím moving forward, broken heart in hand.
And Iím never looking back.
So I guess I should thank you
for opening my eyes.
Not for what you did,
but what you didnít do.
Because my time is too precious,
my life, worth too much,
to waste on the likes of you.

Wonderful work, Melissa. I can totally feel your frustration, anger, and pain in this piece. Geez, the things we put up with from some people. Good luck...

Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!

Okay, this was a great poem.  I could totally relate, not cuz it was my feelings, but it was what my ex could say to me.  And I want to say to you, sometimes, things just aren't meant to be, but if we never take a chance, we'll never experience love...and 'tis better to have loved and lost than never loved at all', right?    Great work!
