Heartbreak By the Lake by Forrest Jamie

I anticipated the heartbreak
I knew would come
because I just couldn’t leave
these feelings and questions unresolved.

And here it is;
first heartbreak
(over eight years in the making)
delivered by
first love.
A new kind of pain
and it’s my own damn fault.
Of course
a girl like me
could never be enough.
Not for you.
But I knew it all along.

So this is what it feels like.
And this is the beautiful view
of the lake we saw
on a Monday afternoon
when you broke my heart.
My eyes began to mimic the waves
while you admitted to your lies.

Did you feel
anything
as you sat there beside me
watching me cry,
watching
my heart breaking?

Until forever fades,
I will love you forever, I’m afraid.
