Green Eyes

My Broken Heart

All I ever wanted was
somebody who would hold me.


Your green eyes found me
when I was vulnerable and lonely.


You saw the best in me,
and you kissed me like you loved me.


Then you saw the worst of me,
and I realized you were never mine.


Green means life but your eyes died
like leaves at the brink of winter.


I striped my soul bare,
and was left to freeze without you.

Cold Endings

You feel left out in the cold after a break up with someone you love. Like those leaves, love died. Sad ~allets~
