A poem I wrote about vengeance, shattered hearts/minds and emotional breakups.

Shattered pieces, all that remain

Left behind by her, nothing but pain.

My heart asunder, torn apart

I knew it wouldn't work, right from the start.

I try so hard to just hold on

But I don't notice she is already gone.

Tightly I cling to these pieces of me

Suffocating without her, I can't breath.


Shattered pieces, all that remain

Doing my best to get through the day.

Why do I bother? I ask myself

Day after day the same old hell.

Life without her, why even try

I see her everywhere, can't help but cry.

Running scared away from this hell

Where am I going? I can no longer tell


Shattered pieces, all that remain

Can no longer try, I feel so drained.

Confused, upset, alone and hurt

She left me behind in the dirt.

Don't have anybody and no one cares

I keep calling but no one is there.

These final words written on page

My final act upon this stage.


Shattered pieces, all that remain

The bullet going through my brain.

The pieces gone finally at last

Letting go of my past.

No more pain, no more sorrow

No more "It will all be better tomorrow."

No more trying, no more cares

She was the one that did this, the pain is shared.
