This is a poem about my wife leaving me and how I feel about it.

A Broken Heart

© Nathan Dunkle

I wake up each morning, Its like I'm in Hell.
My mind races fast, who can I tell?

I feel the pain, it will not subside,
see deep down inside, it feels like I've died.

A piece of me is missing, all I can see,
is darkness and black, surrounding me.

I have not forgotten, all of the pain,
sometimes it feels like I'm going insane.

I hold on to this love, so very tight
I can't give up, can't let it out of my sight.

I try to move on, I really do
but I just can't, cause I still love you.

Please love, open your eyes and see,
No one can love you as much as me.

I gave you my heart, my whole life,
you took them both and became my wife.

We promised to love, to have, to hold
together forever, even after we're old.

but you walked out, left me for dead,
now all I have left, is a cold empty bed.

I lay down each night, praying I might,
wake up to my love, holding me tight.

My broken heart speaks, its hurts so bad,
my life goes on, I live but I am so sad.

To My Wife, My Soulmate, My best friend...
