This poem was written on a very sad night. I was very upset about what had just happened in my life. The girl I was in love with decided that it wasn't going to work anymore. I knew it too, but did not want to face the reality of it until I was forced to.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Sad Love Poems

My Love Left On A Saturday
My belt loosens slowly.
Reminders of you stay fresh
in murky ponds of suffocating tadpoles.
Wake me in the morning,
when the sun shines again.
It's frightening when all I know
falls apart.
And all I know is you.
Hunger squeezes me tighter.
My soul sags with exhaustion.
Ashtrays fill with sleepless nights.
Weeping intensifies my anxiety.
Can tomorrow come without you...
here today?
The cheap chandelier falls on my face.
The rose filled lamp explodes in my hands.
Pain is unrecognizable.
All I knew was you.
My love.

    This poem touched me greatly, I can relate so well, the way the poet describes his emotions is as if he took the feelings from my soul and the thoughts from my mind. Very beautiful!

    This is really touching. It reminds me of a time not long ago when my girlfriend, whom I loved deeply, had to leave for a country never to return again. This poem really sums up the pain and confusion that I (and probably others) felt and still feel as a result. Well done.

    a tear shed from each eye! your poem was magical, it touched me deep inside! although my ex did not leave on a saturday, i still felt the pain that lingers in your body after your break up! i broke up with my boy friend & i feel it was the worst decision ever, all i wont in the world is him back & the funny thing is we like each other so so so much still but there's some thing that just wont let me to him! your poem cleared every thing up for me, i must be off to call him & tell him how i feel! thanks so much for letting us all read your magical poem xXx have a good 1

    This poem is amazing. It made me cry and it sound slike how i feel. My boyfriend left this past wednesday and I love him I still want him to come back but I have to realize that a relationship can't work if the other person doesn't want it to. Even if he says he does it won't survive if he doesn't feel it or show it. We have been together for 3 years and it has been the best and worst 3 years of my life. GOODLUCK with your writing!
