I’m running really late with trying to participate in Sadje’s “What Do You See?” challenge, but I managed to write this little poem before the deadline. As soon as I saw the vacancy sign, I knew I had to write about lost love. The photo is courtesy of Carter Saunders @ unsplash.com.
I’m sure the world can see the sign.
It flashes from my eyes.
My heart, which once was full of love,
Now mourns with tears and sighs.
You filled me with your golden love;
At least I thought ’twas so.
But suddenly you took your love
And said you had to go.
You’ve given yourself to someone new;
I’ll never comprehend
How I could have been so deceived
By nothing but pretend.
My heart is vacant now, indeed,
And all the world can tell.
I’ll keep it vacant from now on:
I’ve learned my lesson well.
