Hard to Let Go of Love - A Poem

Updated on October 29, 2011

A Poem I wrote a long time ago...

It's hard to let go of someone you love

It takes more then a push, more then a shove

Because when you give up a piece of your heart

Having him leave will just tear you apart

I know that it hurts, and I know why you cry

I know why you feel like your dying inside

He lied to you, girl, and he played with your mind!

He yelled and abused you, used words so unkind

Yet you let him come back, gave him more of your heart

Now your crying and hurting and falling apart

Love yourself first, then you would realize

All that fighting and fussing is a waste of your time

Treat yourself right, make him do the same

Don't fight other women girl, he is to blame

Hold your head high, look him straight in the eyes

Tell him "Baby, I'm steppin, don't you dare look surprised!"

Then walk out that door, don't you ever look back

Don't let a man hit you, you deserve respect

      Terrific poem with a most important message. Men who abuse women don't change. I agree with walking out that door! Rated awesome.

      Well put together piece, I felt the message, I felt the pain, I felt love fading, a broken heart in the making. Nicely done, I felt each word. I vote with Scar UP and beautiful.
