Through those haunted eyes
The darkness is flowing
See the other side
The moon no longer glowing

Why won’t you listen?
Love
Loss
Why?
All that’s left is to die.

So fast you came, so fast you went
Now a bright stain on my soul
Was it really love so quickly spent?
You stopped trying before I became whole

Why can’t you understand?
Love
Loss
Why?
All that’s left is to say goodbye.

You left her for me,
now you left me for her
you once held the key
happiness a vague blur

Why won’t you listen?
Love
Loss
Why?
All that’s left is to die.

I guess I was just a mistake
A whim of the heart
Another girl to forsake
The pain is so sharp

Why can’t you understand?
Love
Loss
Why?
All that’s left is to say goodbye.

Life is confusing
No clear rhyme or reason
Is my pain amusing?
I feel you have committed treason

Why won’t you listen?
Love
Loss
Why?
All that’s left is to die.

I just don’t understand
what did I do wrong?
Love is a firebrand
And it sings a mournful song

Why won’t you listen?
Why can’t you understand?
Love
Loss
Why?
All that’s left is to say goodbye.
All that’s left is to die.

I love this poem, keep writing. A lot of poets lose the ability to write what they feel.
