I never used words to hurt you

The way you used your burning gaze on me

To leave a gaping hole in my soul

It was only after thirty-six days that I found

The last memory we made

Fractured by your fall from grace

Would have been easier for you to drag me

Through the thorny sheets of your bed

Than to remove yourself from me

That is a very deep poem. You can really feel the hurt pain and love in the words.

My poetic hat is off to you sir!
