A New Dawning
I am standing on the street in the pouring rain,
by Kate Rob
My makeup gliding down my cheeks like rivers gushing from my heart.
My hair is wet, plastered to my face; I am screaming curses to his name.
The pages of his letters are all around me, that I’ve torn apart.
The rain soaks me down to the bone,
I am trying to feel, feel anything at all.
Shutting out the memories of all that love I have once shown.
I use to stand so strong; I didn’t know that I could fall.
I stumbled into this love blind,
And fell out of it like a rock.
He stole my key and began to wind
Open my heart, he didn’t bother to knock.
Once he was in I couldn’t get him out,
Slowly he took over my thoughts.
I am screaming till I can no loner shout.
He made my stomach flip, tied my tongue in knots.
I can’t believe I let him takeover my life,
I was, and think I still am, in love with him
Than why do I feel like he stabbed me with a knife?
I thought he loved me too, I thought it was real, not just a whim.
I don’t think he knows what he is doing to my heart
That’s just like him, to have no idea what’s happening
But no matter what I have a spirit that he’ll never tear apart.
I see, in my life, a new beginning dawning
