Seems as though no matter how deep you bury the truth.....your tell tale heart unearths it....

Tell tale heart

Be still my beating heart
Least the truth be known
For he is no longer yours
Your love he’s disowned

Hush now racing blood
Least he can hear your rush
For no longer does he long
For yours, but another’s touch.

Voice do not waiver
You must regain control
Eyes do not hold gaze
Least he sees into your soul

Tears do not fail me
By running hot and fast
For he no longer takes pity
You’re now a time from his past.

Legs do not quiver
Letting weakness show
He’s the one who walked away
Now you must let him go.

  I really liked this poem. I truly did. Ive had to let somebody go before and it was hard as hell. Everytime theyd text me or call me to appologize, I wanted to forgive so bad and just let things go and start off fresh, but I had to be the stronger one and let it go. Its a hard process...something Im still struggling with. But I liked the poem alot and can relate like you couldn't imagine.

  This is again a really good poem written by you brown. I really enjoy reading your work. It has such feeling and emotion into that it can't be described You don't have to change anything about this poem. It is great as it is. You have taken a tough moment but in the end made it sweet by the set of the tone instead of angry and mad. You are an excellent writer that is all i have to say about that. Thanks for another wonderful piece.

  I really enjoyed this. It was quiet and accepting instead of the usual angry breakup poem. You seem to show a deep understanding that when love is over there is nothing you can do. Its in the past and will stay in the past even though you don't want it to be. Like:
"Legs do not quiver
Letting weakness show
He's the one who walked away
Now you must let him go"

  This is a very mature breakup poem, because you are more accepting and less spiteful. You look after yourself, rather than scorn your ex lover's path.

From here, only he can complicate things, should he choose to come back...he was a moron for leaving you in the first place.

Hopefully that if and when things get more complicated, you can handle that as well as you handled losing him.

The real loss is his...I hope he gets an STD HEHE EEEEWWWW

  This was excellent, although in the state I'm in, I really shouldn't have read it as it has me almost in tears!

You really hit this emotion and the scene perfectly, it was well detailed, and very emotional. Though I'm not surprised, I've enjoyed all the work I've read of yours. Don't ever stop'll stay in my prayers, and I know something awesome is going to happen in your life. I know it.

Kick butt pic too..I love it!

*hugs a plenty*

  definitely let him go... it makes me so sad to have to read these poems by you chica... i would rather you be happy, but if this is your way of getting it all out, then i will read everything you have to say.

i don't know how many times i've told you this, but you are STRONG and BEAUTIFUL and all that good stuff, and YOU KNOW IT! cuz if you don't, i'ma have to fly down to nuevo mexico and knock some sense into ya! and i don't have money for airfare, so don't make me have to do something illegal to get it. kidding. but for real though, once you can finally, truly, accept in your heart that you are better of without him, you'll be that much more happy, and that much more at peace with yourself. [love ya sis]

  Just f*cking great. Let me have a nervous breakdown right here in the library because the things that you write so mirror what I am feeling. This was really beautiful. That's all I really know to say. It's beautiful, it's eloquent, and it's both delicate and tough. You create some really beautiful poetry.

  This is a good write, T. Simple and tight, it expresses how one feels when a breakup occurs. Not ready to give up yet knowing we must and trying to hold it together. You ended with a very strong stanza. Great job.

  this is so sad... trying to hold it all in least he see how you grieve his leaving.. trying to be strong when all you really want to do is breakdown and release the pain.

very expressive and powerful in keeping the pain at bay lest it break you in two.

  This does have a very classic feel, but there are more than a couple of clichés in this (I admit that I'm guilty of that too though). I still like it, but I just think that it could be more unique in both style and content. I like your rhyme in "Hush now racing blood/ Least he can hear your rush." I like your use of near rhyme too. I hope you don't get angry with me. It's just my opinion.

  I knew what I wanted when I chose to read this piece and you didn't disappoint me. You've written a beautiful write. Although in some spots I found the flow was a little off. And in this stanza

Voice do not waiver
You must regain control
Eyes do not hold gaze
Least he sees into your soul

Waver is spelt < like that.

Legs do not quiver
Letting weakness show
He’s the one who walked away
Now you must let him go.

That was my favourite stanza, although I do think that the flow was off in the first line, adding a please before the do not could fix that though.

  Tina, Tina, Tina...

Another fine piece from you!

Excellent choice of words and expressed feelings. It reads very sweet indeed - heart-wrenching...(bittersweet) wouldn't change a thing for fear of losing the feelings you expressed here...
