A Dampened Light

You called me tonight
Not knowing where to start
To tell me goodbye.
It left a hole in my heart.

"We can still be friends..."
I started to cry.
But held my tears back,
This wasn't the end.

You said you still cared,
It would be alright.
But how will I get through
All those lonely nights?

The way that you held me
In your arms so tight.
The way that you kissed me
So tenderly last night.

How could this be true?
It felt so right.
Now I'm dark inside,
When I was once so bright.

I can't live without the way
Things used to be.
I guess I'll have to,
So unwillingly.

Every love song I hear
Reminds me of you.
Not holding you every day
Will kill me whatever I do.

I must go on
With my broken life.
With a great friendship,
A dampened Light.

I thought this was an excellent poem. It's beautiful. I believe everything that happens, happens for a reason and is part of a bigger plan, even if we don't understand, or want to understand the reason.

Hang in there and keep up the good work

Isn't it odd how a love can make you sad
But one thing is for certain
That in life it is our destiny
To discover the joys and heartache
Of having our heartstrings tugged at times.
Karen, your writing is sweet!
