From Our Readers: A Poem I Wrote A Month After We Broke Up

I can't afford to drown myself much longer.
ART Trixie Ison

We broke up just 23 hrs and 57 minutes before our 7th month together. And I wrote this poem a month later. If you're reading this, I know I was the one who said let's just finish this. But you cannot blame me. I know we're slowly drifting apart. And I know you're already happy with her that time. And I can't afford to drown myself much longer.

Haunted

The dawn is breaking
And the sun started shining 
I catch a glimpse of you in my head
As i remember what you'd say

I was your sunshine
I remember how you said that to me
You said I was your only
But I guess The One is not entitled to me

I dreamt of you last night
And my heart almost jumped by beating
There was never a conversation
But I'm contented with you staying

I don't know why you visited
But babe I'm glad you did
I miss having you by my side
Thought the memories were eradicated

This was supposed to be our day
Baby do you remember?
Feeling festive every month
On this very day, each and every hour

Phone calls till midnight
Keeping each other updated
Sharing secrets every day
I remember lauging with you was priceless

The sun rises and sets
Our I love yous and  I miss yous are dead
You said we'll wait till the end
But you're the one who suddenly left
