All That Was Lost
I'm tired of trying, tired of crying
Deep down inside you knew I've been dying
Im honest with you, I'm not even lying
But my dedication to you was the only thing you're fighting
I loved your face, I loved your laugh
I adored your eyes, how you would look back
Smile, hug, and tell me it's all okay
But suddenly you left me at the end of the day
A final goodbye I hadn't the chance to say
Cause all you were doing was pushing me away
I became your enemy, on you features a snarl
Every single time we talked; a quiet quarrel
I never expected you wanting it this way
Not wanting me to stick around, or to stay
I regret trusting you, I abhor your attitude
Your anger and deception was really quite rude
At the same time, I wanted you to say
Oh, my dear lover, my love towards you isn't a game
I pushed back, I struggled, I raged and I fought
The feelings and emotions and inside that you taught
The tears of misery, the shame on your face
Was all just an act, calling me a waste
I'm sorry I lied, I'm sorry to say goodbye
But all in all, you don't care, so why should I?

Hi Spike, 

I like this poem.  It isn't all upbeat in that at the end of a tunnel is a light, it resounds with the bitterness that can come into an ending of a romance and how people project their own dissapointments or endings that weren't so great onto the partner.  Theres a nice line '' The tears of misery, the shame on your face'' very poignant. 

I am a newby here so please feel free to check out some of my work.  I haveread at various poetry conventions across London including at the Betterton Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden.  I would love to improve and this forum is great for feedback.  Cheers to you
