Good-bye

Form: Cornish Sonnet

How can you say the words that speak of love
Then tear my heart to shreds with just a glance?
I feel like you can't wait to be rid of
Me, cast me aside like an old, broken toy
No longer breathing the sighs of romance
All hope was lost along with that sweet joy
My countless tears replaced your gentle kiss
As gaily coloured roses lost their hue
And dreams surrendered to heartbreak's abyss
The pain won't fade to that I can attest
And now there is but one thing left to do
As I say good-bye and wish you all the best
All hope was lost along with that sweet joy
My countless tears replaced your gentle kiss
