About the Poem

I wrote this poem about my best friend who was going through a rough time with her boyfriend.

The Truth In Love

Can you not see the hurt in her eyes,
the pain
the sorrow?
It comes with every new tomorrow.

Don't you see if you leave her reaching for you at arms length,
her heart screaming your name,
your relationship can and will never be the same?

A wild rose is your love,
beautiful yet piercing -
longing to be tame.
For this are you willing to surrender your precious fame?

So you see it isn't all that it's cracked up to be,
romance and poetry.
What is?

When you wake in a cold sweat because she isn't there.
You reach for the phone -
suddenly there's no one to call.
Was it really worth your one kiss love affair?

The relentless pain inside your empty heart.
The girl on the other side of the room
from whom you thought you'd never part.

So now you know -
Though you'll never admit it.
There's nothing worse than a broken heart.
