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.

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.

  • Amie
    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!

  • Helen
    This is so true, my love left on a sunday, i can still, to this day feel the intensity of my emotions as a watched him walk out the door. I was ready to curl up and die, even my clothes ached my skin as i removed them that evening.
  • Rissa
    A lovely poem! What's interesting about it, is the fact that it reminds me sooo much of what happened between me and my ex bf abt 3 mths ago. Unfortunately he thought it was best that we part - I was pretty much left heartbroken and even to this day I think of him.
  • kendr
    Its touching on what a man can write , You don't usually see a man write poems , but when you do they are beautiful. GREAT POEM , MAN!
  • tahn
    i guess i can use this quote "it's better to have been loved and lost than to have never been loved at all" i guess that the bad part is the awful pain when all your dreams are over and reality comes nocking. but you know you have a great way of expressing yourself in such a beautiful way. your poem touched me. cus i lost my one love but it was my fault, but anyhow keep writting!
  • Lisset
    good poem, men don't usually share their feelings of such, for fear of "less masculinity" but you said it bluntly and with feeling. that was cool

  • Parul
    The poem is so simple and touching. How when everything seems so unbelieveably perfect, with no scope for doubts, so smooth that there can be no flaws.within a moment destiny with it's cruel twists, leaves us so pale..languishing. One this moment TRUE or was that true when Love resided?
  • Dinny
    your poem just reminds me of this saturday morning and the actions I took.
  • parul

    Talk about fulfilling an insatiable need...I've often stumbled upon the question of a man's devotion. Most sentiment is portrayed by the woman of the two conjoined, so I dare to challenge a man's affection toward his beloved. Michael has stepped up to the plate here, and he soars high as he has become febrile with accomplishment and satisfaction on my behalf. Now I know beyond reasonable doubt that I too may invite hope to remain within the depths of my soul, and wait patiently for my bethrothed. I was once advised against wishing for something I already possess, that love will find me...well, my adorned heart has been bled but sits idly for the next ride.
