The Sunset of Summer

My Broken Heart

I saw you on a warm day

in the middle of the summer.


Your smile drew me in;

your aura captured me.


You were the life of the party.


I was the girl that was

too shy to say a word. 


Until we had parted ways.


Behind a computer screen,

I'm the bravest girl you've ever seen.


I never thoought you noticed me,

let alone want to know me.


You convinced me you did;

I believed you with everything in me.


You were my world that summer.


I could not think about anything else,

and maybe that's the problem.


Maybe that's why you left 

me in the sunset of summer.
