About the Poem

I wrote this after I received an e-mail from my girlfriend which was uncharacteristically short and contained no hint of "I love you" or anything like that. Fortunately, she wasn't leaving me, but for a while, I must confess that my world felt like it had fallen round my ears. I didn't know what I had done wrong, and I certainly didn't want to lose her, so I wrote her a return e-mail, and wrote this in that e-mail, so it is simply my heart on paper.

Come Back

I sit here
desolate
crying
why?
what have I done?
don't leave me
not like this
there must be a mistake
somewhere
I have done nothing wrong
or have I?
this torture destroys sleep
kills laughter, encourages pain
and depression and worry.
Just tell me that everything is alright
that I have made a stupid mistake
that you will love me always
and I will be healed of my hurt.
Until then I see nothing
hear nothing
feel nothing
but the beating of my heart
and the throbbing in my brain
as I die to everything
but the reality
that you don't want me.
Tell me is this true?
You know I would die for you
and I would never want to hurt you.
You are my first true love
and my sunshine on my soul
so please come back,
please?
