The End of the World


It was going so well
putting the past behind me
memories fading
moving on
no more sadness
tears or pain
the light in my eyes
once so dim
slowly began to return
I laughed more
people noticed
I was starting
to feel free again
and smile
but all it took
was a song
flipping through the stations
and there it was
on the oldies channel
not our song
I can’t listen to that
but the words
were like a knife
plunged into my chest
ripping out my heart
and tossing it to the floor
the tears began to fall
as I sat in my car
remembering how that felt
when you broke my heart
and my world ended
