via Daily Prompt: Noise


How can I stop the noise
Resounding in my head?
It keeps getting louder
It wakes me from my bed.

Over and over
Again and again
When will it stop
When will it ever end?

I try to forget you
I keep busy, I work, I read
I go to the movies
I blog and I tweet.

But, nothing I can do
Can block my thoughts of you
You keep creeping in
What else can I do?

You so easily moved on
You now have it all
I’m still sitting here
Waiting for your call.

My friends think I’m pathetic
They can’t understand
Why am I still pining
For such a selfish, heartless man?

You walked out the door
You never once looked back
You left me here in tears
What was it that I lacked?

I go over and over
Playing back the tapes
But, you’re not coming back
Guess I made a big mistake.
