Poem: Funny How Things Change

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Things Change" by Dwight Yoakam

Funny how things change,
one minute she is the love of his life,
he cannot imagine life without her,
then in a blink of an eye
his desire changes.

He claims to love their life together
saying how good she is for him,
then suddenly he wants nothing to do with her
And walks away.

It’s hard for her to imagine
what changed him in such a short time,
how his love could simply die
without warning.

Funny how things change,
one minute she loved him with all her heart,
she could not imagine life without him,
then in a blink of an eye
her desire changes.

Her heart feels nothing but emptiness,
realizing he is not the man she trusted with her heart
knowing his love was not real,
she locks the door.
