About the Poem
First let me say that I am not a frequent poem writer, but with all the pain and violence (domestic especially) going on these days, I searched my notebook of miscellaneous "stuff" thinking it would be a great idea to share with others a bit of my past. You might say it's a poem of abuse, and let me add that I still say; "I would rather be hit because a bruise disappears, but the emotional, verbal, and psychological abuse stays with you forever!"
I wrote this approximately 5 years ago, after a year long relationship that was based on lies and deception and a little illusion. And before that, I was involved for 3 years in a relationship of abusive hell. This poem was written when I couldn't take anymore.
On a happier note, I am now living in paradise, and found a love most only dream about!
|Of all the mistakes I've ever made,
falling in love with you, makes the grade.
Months of fighting for what I thought was mine.
When you could really care less,
and hurting me was just fine.
When reality hit, and the tears finally fell.
You Shrugged your shoulders,
hung up, and said "Oh well! "
You might have won this battle
of breaking my heart.
But your day will come
when all you have is lost, and fallen apart.
Though I'm not the type to cheer pain on,
When it comes your way.
I'll be the first to say,
"He got what he deserves, the low- life con!"
Well good- bye for now is the last I'll say.
And I can't wait for your sad, hurtful, and lonely day!
