The Broken Hearted's Anthem (Rose's Greatest Hits)

By RoseTheBrokenHearted

One more day,
and one more time;
to spend with you,
to get this right. 

Here's to the years,
spent left behind;
and here's to the years
where love was blind.

How could you say
what you didn't mean?
My senses were down,
and yours were keen.

I danced along,
in the devil's fire.
Hand in hand,
to be your desire.

Nights were short,
and our days were long.
This is the story,
that wrote out our song.

Empty sheets of paper,
scream out your name;
like I did,
every night after you left.

Can't you come back,
with the November rain?
Take me back,
and remove all the pain.

This is my entry for the "Greatest Hits of Your Poems" contest.

    If I didn't know that this was a combination of poems, I'd think it was only one and a very deep and emotional one at that. Great entry! - 10
