I found something here that is down to Earth and easy for many people to relate to. A lot of people write the broken-hearted, pain pieces but don't begin to accomplish this.
"you looked me in the eyes
told me i was your everything
my eyes now filled with tears
lookin in yours nothing is clear"
This was the first stanza that struck me! "Lookin in yours nothing is clear" is a place where a lot of people have found themselves and when reading this line will find themselves dwelling back in that moment when they felt the same way.
Lines like "you lied and I still care" help to paint the picture as well as the reference to hitting the bottle while laying in the bed alone. This is simple yet powerful...And that's the type of poetry that speaks most!
