Dead as a doornail

3 Sept 2022

Last night I was in bed staring at the ceiling.
Down my cheeks strolled teardrops soaking my pillow
Will it be over?, Will I ever get over this feeling?
I closed my eyes hard enough hoping to never wake up tomorrow

Heartbroken best describes me at the moment
It's obvious that I'm not getting enough
But what else am I supposed to do when
I'm a victim of a one-sided love

Is there really light at the end of the tunnel?
What if the tunnel has no end?
What if my future is dead as a door nail
Will we ever be us again?

This poem was inspired by one of the greatest books I have ever read in my life. The book titled 'Dead as a doornail' was written by Charlaine Harris
 In 2001
