About the Poem

I wrote this a long time after I broke up with someone, after the pain had healed and I could look back rationally, when I had realized he was doing what he had to do.

And that deep down he cared about me.

Slow Tears

I look up
as a tear rolls slowly
down my cheek
I think about better days
and wonder if I'll feel that way again
you look at me
with those eyes I know so well
always serious, so deep and insightful
as though you're always in control
But not today
not now
Now you look so scared
like for once you don't have the answer
I gaze at you
looking deep into those hazel eyes
Hoping to understand
why you've said those things you did
I wonder for a moment
if this is all a dream
if I shall wake in the morning
and be relieved
you look at me
with a confusion I have never seen
slowly pull me towards you
and wipe the tears from my cheek

This poem touches you to the depth of your heart, it makes you realise that sometimes we look at love in the wrong way. That we make things out of nothing. But it gives you hope that all is not lost.

These words describe my last breakup to a tee. I knew it was coming, and he knew I knew. He knew I was hurting before he even began speaking. We love eachother, but not in the way that makes a romance. These words hurt.
