Poetry by Emily Craig

“Closing Our Chapter”


You shattered my heart

more than the ones before.

I thought I had felt love before

but I was wrong.


Getting lost in the moment

instead of my phone,

living in the mall lights

like little kids on a mission –

That will always be us to me.

Stealing kissing in the window,

Secretly holding hands in the car

like we are two teenagers

hiding from our parents.

I’ll always remember

that spring night

you holding me tight.


Now I say goodbye and

embrace the heartache that you left behind –

For I am better now.

Rising above all the hurt

and learning from the pain.
