Loving Someone Who Used to Love You

20 Apr

Sad Bride

If we could trade places

for just one day, one hour, one minute,

my pain, I’d gladly give you.

The hollow void you left behind

would then be achingly suffered

by you night and day.

My life would be as peaceful

as the expression on your face

when last we spoke.

How true, what they say,

the saddest thing is to love someone

who used to love you.
