An Alternate Ending©

Purple heart, bruised by sorrow.

Eyes swollen shut due to fearful tears.

Inconsolable because you discarded my heart like the days trash.

Hopelessly devoted to my unrequited lover.

I surrender, no longer will I hold onto hope for a union of our hearts.

Buried now are my dreams for a bountiful stories end.

I bow out gracefully and slip back into the darkness now unseen by those that matter most.

Bewildered and forlorn still thinking of what may lie ahead.

I quietly pace the corner of my empty room daydreaming of yet another layer to my hopeful alternate ending.
