My Boyfriend Left Me for Someone Else - a Poem About Feeling Lost in a Relationship

Author:

I am always fascinated on the power of lyricism and poetry. This poem is inspired by stories about experiences at Silliman Bea

He left me
Broken
Lost
Without purpose and meaning


He was my armor
He is now gone
I feel so vulnerable


Don’t judge me, if I loved too much
I gave him my all
But still, it was not enough


Let me cry
At least, give me space to grieve
A dying flame
Needs some air to breathe


Please do not mock me
For being weak
For being too fragile
For being too soft
Conquered by emotions


What am I supposed to do?
Laugh and be merry, that he left
Laugh and be merry, even if he is now with somebody else


While I am here drench in tears
He must be torridly kissing his new girlfriend
Undressing her even as we speak


That’s supposed to be my man
He is gone now
Let me cry!!!


If that bitch is in front of me
I swear
I’ll push my fingers in her eyes


I wish

I was that strong
I wish

I am that vocal


To scream and bite their necks
And just drain the life out of them


I wish I am a monster
I wish I am somebody else
I wish I am tougher
But I am not


I am a princess
Who just lost her charming
I am a short poem
With a broken ending


This day again will end
I feel empty
Move on, I must
But honestly speaking, I can still cannot


Just give me time
Let me cry
Like any other woman
Left with a broken heart
