Getting Over The Pain

I feel so strange,
I'm so confused.
The boy is gone,
I have been used

I start to cry,
All is wrong.
The birds have stopped
Singing their song.

The room is silent,
Except for my tears.
I have been left alone,
Alone with my fears.

I shiver and shake
As I sit and cry.
I feel so cold,
I just want to die.

I freeze with shock,
Can this be me?
The person drowning
In self-pity?

'I am stronger than this,'
I tell myself,
Slowly stand up,
Take the tissue from the shelf.

I dry my eyes,
Sadly smile.
I'll be all right,
At least for a while.
