Bad News

Feel the chill that rises up

From the bottom of his soul.

His heart so hurt it ran

Leaving nothing but a hole.

His tears are falling fast,

He can't seem to make them end.

Still he's waiting there for her

And he'll break before he'll bend.

It's been 2 days since she left

Without a note to say goodbye.

He doesn't deserve a second chance

But could swear she said she'd try.

He sits there hoping breathlessly

To hear his cellphone ring.

Each moment ticking by

Every second a painful sting.

And he'll remain right there forever

Screaming sorries in his head.

But his phone will never ring again

On the news there was a wreck...

She's dead.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Make sure the people you love know it, because sometimes you don't get a second chance.
