Why do I pain
When it was I
Who left.

Why do I feel
Lost
Without you by my side.

Why am I
Crying
If I made the choice.

Why do I hunger
For you
Though I let you go.

I never realized
How important you were
Until you've gone.

Now I want you back
Back by my side
But I cannot find you.

Never again
Shall I see your face.
Or hear your quiet laugh.

I've hurt you
Too deep
Stabbed you too hard.

That sweet love
We once had
Is gone.

Our love is lost
'Cause I didn't treasure.
I threw away what mattered most.
A poem on dumping someone you loved and then realizing that they were the most important thing to you.

A poem based on Written Emotion's prompt Lost Love.
Or was based on that prompt.

But since I can't submit the poem to Written Emotion's prompt I have decided to submit it to da Literature's weekly themes contest instead. The theme is: Lost.

Is this purely fictional or is there any basis to it?

Mostly fiction, happened to me once but it wasn't as bad.

I can tell you that the people who were dumped hurt just as much and if they talk maybe it can exist again.
