Been There Before

Leaving

Don’t try to hide it

I can tell by your eyes

That you’ve been crying

‘Till you just couldn’t cry anymore

I now it hurts like nothing that you’ve ever felt before

The pain runs deep to your core

They say that love hurts

But that term just doesn’t seem to do it justice

I saw him coming

And I told you not to trust him

Now he’s left you wondering what went wrong

I hope that you can weather the storm

Remember, I know

What you’re going through

I’ve been there before

It’s how I felt when you walked out my door

Remember, I know

What you’re going through

I’ve been there before

Its how I felt when you walked out my door

  1. What a beautiful, poignant and heartfelt poem. I so enjoyed the emotion it brought forth, and the memories of love that I have forgotten. It brought a bittersweet tear to my eye and a nostalgic smile to my mouth. Wonderful Jamal. Just wonderful. Thank you for sharing it with me. šŸ™‚
