Do Not Enter - A Poem

Updated on June 5, 2014

At one time you crushed the innocent, trusting love I gave you

Every betrayal brought a tear, every insincere apology a false glimmer of hope

Since you left I haven't been able to cry

Years of healing haven't changed this fact

The only exception being death and birth

And yes, I did have children, with a husband who made us a home, a family, and
who knows how to keep a promise and doesn't run away

But you are not ashamed - the lies and betrayal were my fault. I wasn't enough for you in every way

But alas I can only be me. I'm as pretty as I'll ever be - no more, as smart as I am this moment - no more

Since I clearly don't meet your standards, be gone and do not enter

There's no forgiveness, no friendship, this time you're unworthy and not enough for me

There's no room for you - do not enter!

      Beautiful Heather! I love this part, "with a husband who made us a home". My grandmother always told me home is where the heart is. :)
