My Agony - Poem

Updated on April 18, 2011

Bad Romance

Your Anger

Your anger crashes over me like a violent wave

Knocking me off my feet and washing away any hope of survival.

It pounds on me again and again

Sucking the very breath from my lungs.

Your anger tears through me like a flash of lightening

That rips the very marrow from my bones.

It dashes any hope of happiness I may have had

On the rocks of despair

You Used Me

 

You needed to validate your masculinity,

And erase the fears of your family.

You had to quiet the whispered rumors of childhood friends.

So, you used me.

 

You wanted to expand your portfolio,

And increase your assets.

You wanted to acquire things, things you never had before.

So, you used me.

 

Have you ever loved me at all?

I don’t believe you have.

 

Do you notice the little things I do for you?

You’ve never shown me that you have.

And I wonder if you even care.

 

I think you simply use me to your advantage, when it’s convenient.

 

Would you miss me if I were gone?

Would you mourn if you ever lost me?

I don’t believe you would cry one tear.

 

I think you would simply wash your hands of me

And shed my memory from your mind like a worn out garment.

You would move on with your life because . . .

You used me up.

      "....You wanted to expand your portfolio,

      And increase your assets.

      So, you used me..."

      So real....

      Thank you Nikii. I am humbled to have my poetry compared to a song by such talent as Mya.

      this reminds me of the Mya song

      "If you died I wouldnt cry cause you never loved me anyway."

      and she says

      "You could get struck by lightning washed away by the sea,

      burned in a fire- just dont bring it back to me,

      cause if you died I wouldnt cry, cause you never loved me anyway."

      This is lovely.

      humbling actually.

      Wow, what a powerful and heart-fell poem. And you are so brave to express your inner feeling so well. I do feel how you felt as I have been there before myself. Still life must go on if you so choose. Thank you very much for sharing. I will be publishing my first hub soon. Hope to see you again soon.

      Thank you creativeone59, there is some comfort in knowing that I have not felt this despair alone.

      Yes Louis, this was written from the very depths of a very broken heart. I am saddened that you have had to endure anything like this. I wouldn't desire these emotions to be felt by the worst of humanity.

      Well, it's my way to let it out.

      I'm one of those stuffers. But it's not always good to stuff and I know there are others out there who suffer like I have. And maybe, just maybe, it will help someone to realize they are not alone.
