Random Poem:

All that I used to be

I was the one you wrote to excited
I was the voice at the end of the phone
I was the rouge that stained your cheek
But now I'm the one that's alone.
I was the hand you grasped for comfort
I was the bust that rested your head
I was the thighs you pushed against sweaty
But now I'm the dreamer of things left unsaid.
Mine were the arms that sought your presence
Mine were the tears that you couldn't dry
Mine was the burden of fixing what's broken
When all you could say was goodbye.
