Lesson Learned

A Poem


Promises you made to keep.

Yet I'm standing in your lies knee-deep.

The way you used to make my heart flutter,

Are washed away like the leaves in a gutter.

All my secrets were yours to hold.

My passion about you never got old.

But, I fell like cherry blossom leaves.

Took me awhile to forget how you breathe.

Dead inside, you made me dark.

Your light never again will be my spark.
