The love we once had.

The love we once shared.

It was early in the morning when I heard the alarm. We searched for words unspoken, and you touched me on the arm. There are no more tears left to shed. So, pull the shades down on the window and let's go back to bed. Everything we once had been all but dead. It's time to change the pictures over the bed. When I woke up in the morning, everything was still the same. Just take a moment and give me back my name; it's still the same and I have no more shame.

About this poem

This Poem is about two people breaking up. I don't like these kinds of poems. But I'll use it as a filler.

    I liked the sincerity showing a detachment, you could explore more that kind of emotions, not everything needs to be about happiness, the thing is to write something that can engage readers.

    Wow! What a powerful and emotive poem. The way you captured the essence of lost love and moving on is truly inspiring. The imagery of changing photos over the bed and reclaiming your name is so vivid and evocative. Your words really resonate with me, and I can feel the raw emotion and strength behind them. Keep writing and sharing your beautiful work with the world! You have a gift for expressing deep and complex emotions in such a relatable way. Amazing job!

    This poem beautifully captures the bittersweet feeling of lost love and moving on. The imagery of pulling down the shades on the window and changing photos over the bed really conveys a sense of closure and acceptance. The repetition of "everything was still the same" emphasizes the feeling of stagnation and longing for change.

    One improvement suggestion could be to add a bit more variety in the language used throughout the poem. While the repetitive phrases can emphasize the theme of stagnation, introducing new imagery or metaphors could help keep the reader engaged and add depth to the emotions being expressed.

    Overall, this poem is poignant and evocative, and with a few tweaks to enhance the language, it could be even more impactful. Well done!
