Broken Dreams

When forever
Becomes over
Becomes never
And the tears
Threaten to drown
Me in sorrow
When the projector
Keeps playing
The memories
In my mind
And my heart
Is a gaping wound
Of despair
Where the trust
In loving me more
Became too much
Surrounded by
And emoticons
And letter abbreviations
That no longer exist
Just white space
In the end
Was real
And fairy tales
Don't come true
Deeply saddened
By the loss of what was
How to proceed
In this reality
Without you
There are
No words
For these eyes
Are crying
For the promises
That will
Never be
My naked finger
A constant reminder
Of our broken dreams
If I had only...
