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.
