Falling out of love part 1

As my love for you has
Grown
So your love for me has
Faded

With a few
Carefully chosen words
You killed a thousand
Hopes
Dreams
And moments yet to be

You sharpened your words
To form a blade
An arrow
That has swiftly
Skillfully
Pierced my heart

This arrow has torn a hole
Form which the rivers of
Pain and
Tears
Now flow

The rapids washing
Me
Away
Drowning me.
Carrying me to a destination
Unknown

When will these sad rivers cease?

Only time will tell.

Although injured,
My heart still beats.
Drumming notes,
Rhythms and
Songs

Although insignificant,
Unimportant and
Unwanted,
These songs sing of love,
Unrequited.

I am aware
Of these things
Beyond
Your control
These feelings
Which have approached
Unseen

Never
Would you have thought
That this moment would come
So soon.

When will I again bask in the glow
Of a love like yours (ours?)

Only time will tell.
