About the Poem
This poem was written on a very sad night. I was very upset about what had just happened in my life. The girl I was in love with decided that it wasn't going to work anymore. I knew it too, but did not want to face the reality of it until I was forced to.
My Love Left On A Saturday
|by Michael Perez|
|My belt loosens slowly.
Reminders of you stay fresh
in murky ponds of suffocating tadpoles.
Wake me in the morning,
when the sun shines again.
It's frightening when all I know
And all I know is you.
Hunger squeezes me tighter.
My soul sags with exhaustion.
Ashtrays fill with sleepless nights.
Weeping intensifies my anxiety.
Can tomorrow come without you...
The cheap chandelier falls on my face.
The rose filled lamp explodes in my hands.
Pain is unrecognizable.
All I knew was you.
