The Day That Broke Me

The day that broke me

Is a day I will always have

Permanently engraved in my mind.

August 11th.

This was the day everything

I loved


My hands were held open

Longing for your fingers

To lace between mine.

But instead, they were

Stood up.

The day that broke me

Was the day you said I

Wasn't worth it.

You no longer cared about

My hand holding yours

Or my lips kissing yours

Or my eyes looking into yours

Or my heart beating for


August 11th is a day

I am always re-living.


That was the day

That broke me.

            The end of a loving relationship is never easy. But look at it this way, Hannah: Better an end with pain then pain with no end.
            Your writing is very good.
            'Longing for your fingers
            To lace between mine.
            But instead, they were
            Stood up' is a beautiful and imaginative choice of words.
