I should have known
that you were going to break my heart
when you started saying hello
with that smirk on your face.

I should have known
that you were going to break my heart
when the smiles you sent my way
stopped reaching your eyes.

I should have known
that you were going to break my heart
when the way you talked
turned restless and bored.

I should have known 
that you were going to break my heart
when the hugs you gave me
became half-hearted shrugs.

I should have known
that you were going to break my heart
when the lengthy phone conversations
changed into hours of waiting for your call.

I should have known 
that you were going to break my heart
when the affectionate visits
evolved into a series of excuses.

I should have known
that you were going to break my heart
when the love in your eyes
transformed into coldness and indifference.

One thought on “I should have known…

  1. It really hurts when someone does that. The poem vividly expresses those feelings of hurt and betrayal 😦 It's really sad…but then, the sun will never stop shining no matter what happens 🙂 Never lose hope!
