Impact of Power

Updated on February 13, 2014

Each day is started all the same

Thoughts of you consume my brain

You played a cruel part in my demise

Using your power to awaken

a long lost desire.

To me it was everything

To you just a powerful game

A desire you filled for your own gain.

Never once thinking of the impact

You would have in another's vulnerable life.

You carefully invaded and consumed my every thought

Slithering deep into my heart and soul

Completely devouring my whole being

Leaving it marked for death.

Once you captured every ounce of me

You backed away.

Not even realizing the impact of

Your lasting memory.

You desire power and with it

Comes a certain responsibility,

One of nurturing and caring.

My deepest trust given freely to you.

With nary a care you broke me.

Breaking my soul,

The very essence of me

Leaving me lost and alone.

How could you not know

The impact of what you were doing?

Or was it you truly didn't care?

Now shattered and lost,

Tattered and torn,

empty and alone,

full of despair and forlorn

Crying and waiting,

Longing and yearning

to be filled with my deepest desire,

All of which came from the impact of power.

    Thank you for taking time to read and comment. As in any relationship, a lot of emotions are revealed, good and bad.

    Some people abuse the power they have over others. Sad poem, but it is often a sentiment people feel in a relationship.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my hub and comment. I always worry when I write. I always wonder if I can really express the message I'm trying to convey. Thank you for commenting.

    Thank you, I was just throwing some words together this morning. I even thought about changing it some once again.

    Beautiful poem. The pictures accompanying it is perfect...something beautiful being tossed aside and broken.
