Cold Shoulders

Cold as Ice

Source


For whatever reason

you are nice

to those who hate

and sabotage your cause.


You bend and break

for those who never

care to support anything you do.


You kiss and hug

those who need

to trash you out

for never a care of

you or yours.


Yet with me

you have a detest

so strong it burns

under your skin

lashes out every day

keeps you burning

through endless days

and long nights.


Though I have always been

here to take your abuse

harsh words

cold heart,

one day you will turn around

and I’ll be gone.

Morning truthfornow.

Hope these are only hub words and not your real life. This sort of thing happens more often then we care to admit. I hope all is well.

Take care.

You post some strong feelings of mistrust which most of us experience now and then. If this is from your recent experience, I hope that you are working through the web of frustration and come out on top. Keep smiling!

Thanks Ghaelach and teaches12345 for your comments. Life has good and bad, so I consider myself blessed to have way more good than bad. Take care.
