Loving You Still

Updated on March 29, 2015

I loved you when your heart was cold.
I loved you when your heart was empty.
I loved you at your worst,
walking around head down
with your feelings hurt.

I loved you from afar.
Before we met,
you broke my heart.
I asked my friends who you were.
Before they could reply,
I saw you kissing her.

I loved you as a cheater,
a drunk, a liar
and womanizer.
I didn't turn my cheek
when you approached me
cause my poor, broken heart
was loving you still.

I wished I could change you.
I thought I'd warm up your frozen love,
but all I wanna do now, is blame you.
Why'd you let me lose you?

I loved you at your worst.
I walked around with my feelings hurt.
I'm attracted to the darkness in your soul.
I wonder why I like a man this troubled.
Am I stupid?

All I wantes was to save you.

You chased around plenty skirts
and left their feelings hurt.
Guilt tells me I made it worse...

I enabled you.
I never set boundaries for you.
I never begged you to stay.

You gave her a ring,
but I wasn't supposed to care
cause you hadn't said your vows yet,
that's what you said.

Like you were gonna give me a real chance,
you swore you were a free man.
I knew better cause I remember the day we met.

I am full of shame.
I know I was wrong,
but that's what happens
when you combine vodka, mixed emotions
and the perfect song.

I loved you because you were beautiful
and that's why you hurt me.
Looking in your eyes
I see my name on a tombstone,
but I haven't been buried.

I know my time is coming
and no matter what you do to me,
my poor, broken heart is loving you still...

      Nope, it didn't end well at all! However, I did learn and grow from the experience. I don't have any regrets. Thanks for stopping by!

      Well Ryem, I'm sure this relationship ended up in the dumps. Hope you've turned it around. Thanks for your openness!

      This is a tough but harsh reality about love, cause when it rains it pores as they say. I love the ending and how it twisted right back around to love once more.

      Smooth style and flow of emotional poetry written with pure passion for the other. Thumbs up and getting shared, and thanks for checking out a hub of mine recently, you now have a new follower for sure. Peace!

      Beautiful and with a ring of honesty to the passion that shines inside the words. The singer Adele got her best inspiration from break ups. i think you are similarly inspired and your emotions and great writing talents did the rest. :)

      Damn!!!! (pardon my french) but the first few lines caught me by the throat, and this is that raw straight from the heart exposing that we artists should always be willing to do. Anybody can do "cute!"

      This type of poetry is "real" young lady, and makes other poets envy you
