Crazy Man : A Poem

Updated on May 30, 2012

Want to cry

But the tears won't come.

Can't move my feet

Though my mind says "RUN!"

Want to tell you how much you hurt me,

But the words won't get off my tongue.

So I stand there waiting...waiting…

Waiting for it to come.



The words you say

Slap me harder then the rubber in your hand.

Words that you later deny

You've ever said.

Wish you were dead

Though the thought I dread.

You've tried turning my brother against me

To let him hate me just like you.

Still I stand here waiting…waiting…

Waiting for help to come.



Why did you force me to stay?

The marks on my body and in my mind

Are proof of your hate.

Your own flesh and blood you treat like a slave.

I'm here all alone

No contact to the outside world.

Why am I still here waiting...waiting…

Waiting for happiness to come?


She turned you against me

Told you lies about me.

I know you don't love her

But you love to hate me.

I'm done waiting.

I'm done believing.

I'll do this on my own

'Cause you're a crazy,

Crazy man.

      Thank you for your kind comment Cleaner3. At the time when I wrote this, it was easier for me to express myself in writing.

      Thank you Charity. I wrote this poem about five or six years ago. I found it when I went back for a visit. I have forgiven him and we've come a very long way. We can now sit at the same table without wanting to strangle each other. :)

      I haven't forgotten everything and I hope I don't. I have learned a lot from my experiences so if I forget them I may not be able to help someone who is going through a similar situation.

      Very deep poem and I feel where you are coming from. I pray for your happiness and I know you won't forget but do hope you can forgive (for your sake that is).
