Did you love her more than me?

Did you love her more than me?



Did you love her

more than me?

near the end

all we did was disagree.


You told your lies

You said everything right

promised to forever love me

in the dark of night.


you took my heart

in your hands

threw it around a bit

then broke it all apart.


My love for you

was so very strong

you didn't even care

you were doing me wrong.


Why didn't you just go

you didn't have

to hurt me so.


You took my life

the very worst way

When you slashed my neck

with your knife.


My blood was everywhere

including your hands

it can't be washed off

that's how it stands.


You didn't have to cut me so

you did wrong

I guess it was to her

you wanted to go.


Now you're in jail

All your efforts for her

including my betrayal

It was all to no avail.


You won't have her now

the one for whom you killed

she left you after learning

when why and how.


She was having an affair with you

you scared her killing me

she feared someday

that she would be me too.


You killed me just for loving you

I didn't deserve to die for it,

why did you have to kill me

when we could have just split.


My face and blood, you'll see now,

everyday you'll think of me.

All for some other girl

who now you'll never see.


Your crime didn't go

as you planned it would,

it was to messy

with all my blood.


Was she worth it to you

to start a new life

So much you would kill me

for a brand new wife.


Tell me did you love her

more than me?

That must be true,

I'm dead you see

because of you.

Dear Rusti,

I am so glad that I followed my heart and finding you. This is an EXCELLENT poem. Sad, but in a realistic, true-life style. I loved it. You tell a great story and have a great gift. I left you some fan mail and I am following you.

What I want you to do is read one or two of my hubs and become one of my followers--I would love it.

I will be looking for you and thanks in advance.

Kenneth

Well my dear I hope this isn't about something that just happened but rather a past memory. Beautifully written and I think you captured the feelings of heartache quite well. Very nice job my friend....and if this is about now you know where you can find a friend.
