What do you know of heartbreak?
You don’t get emotionally invested
Your eyes have never been tested
For the number of tears, they can dispel
Your lips, for the number of apologies
They can propel.
You can walk out of love like it meant nothing
You, forget people like children forget old playthings.
You thought the song under the stars was a childish gesture
My love, my care, my loyalty, do you realize they are a treasure?
You dismissed the cards I made you,
Staying up all night
You go to your parties, right after a fight.
You see no emotions in the poetry I write
You don’t fear losing your love,
and waking with a fright.
You say you’re stoic and unemotional
I say you have never known love and devotion.
I say you haven’t felt the pain I feel
When I see her every day
When I wonder why do people like her get their way?
I say you haven’t felt the crushing weight
of someone’s lips as they part with a final kiss.
I say, your heart has no one to long for, no one to miss.
I say that you have not felt the burning flames of love
Of a feeling so intense that it consumes your being.
Neither have you felt the pain of an indifferent lover
Because you are the first to walk out, even before it’s over.
