I'm Still In Love With You

When you told me you no longer loved me 

I slowly went out of my mind

I've been promised that all wounds will heal 

if just given a little time

 

But whoever said that's mistaken 

and nothing is further from true

Cause it's been awhile since you walked out 

and girl I'm still in love with you

 

I thought that we had something special 

had a bond that nobody could break

I guess I was just being foolish 

and that wasn't my only mistake

 

But you broke my heart when you walked out 

baby you broke it right in two

So I'll try to pick up the pieces 

from still being in love with you

 

Sometimes my heart starts to hurting 

and I'm wanting to cry out your name

But I know if I were to give in 

I'd just be causing myself more pain

 

So I fight back all my emotions 

but sometimes it's just so hard to do

No matter what my mind tries to tells me 

girl I'm still in love with you

 

...........I wrote this in 2001...and borrowed the music of Best of Intentions by Travis Tritt for the flow ....so be gentle lol

    Thanks for sharing JEFF ~ strructurally this is a perfect poem Quatrains and a consistent rhyme pattern (xaxa ~ xbxb etc) and (because you based it on music) it flows like silk ! Thanks for your comment on my POETRY POEM. I love the pathos in your poem ~ I'm only 33 but I could have written your poem several time. I'm in a good relationship right now which aids the healing process ! Yours BRIAN

    Its amazing how love can heal ...i have a poem that starts out: Faith may move a mountain...but only love can heal a heart. I've struggled with so many demons in this life...i often feel love was never meant for me...or peace of mind. Thank you for commenting Brian...you have no idea how much each one means to me

    Quite a moving piece. Sad to read but flows nicely and so kind of makes me feel the resignation of the words through the flow of the poem. I like it. 👍
