A Teardropp Too Heavy

When you and I first separated
I wanted to run off and hide
I created discussions between us
I Strangled my love deep inside

I can't stand to see me without you
It feels so stupid and cruel
But if you and I don't stay together
Aren't we both playing the fool?

After living for six months without you
You showed up and brightened my life
I didn't dare say that I love you
I did ask if you'd be my wife

I can still see you looking so lovely
In a satin dress colored in peach
I was screaming inside to please love me
But u were no longer in reach

You sent me away with the flick of your wrist
I cried yes I cried and I cried
My heart said that you should still love me
My head said hey maybe she lied

Now time passes ever so slowly
I'm living a life that's a lie
I can't stand just living without you
I'm shriveling waiting to die

I can't go on living without you
I feel that my life is a flop
A teardropp too heavy starts crying
A heart that stays broken will stop

This is a lament in the truest sense and with it's honesty it really pulls at the heartstrings - - 'I can't stand to see me without you' could almost be the title of a ballad Beau.... and the whole thing would no doubt translate well with music.... just the tenderest romantic write - - well done........10 from Fay.
i really love the flow and the beautiful phrases
When we became unloved we feel broken inside, time will heal the wounds they say but aren't wounds leave scar of pain? Awesome poem of loneliness devoid of love. A 10.
For me, this poem is very emotionally real. I remember my divorce and feeling shell shocked for so long.
