Make me feel loved

Updated on January 17, 2017

I did everything you wanted

Just as perfect as I could

But no matter what I did for you

That never seemed to be quite enough

Nothing ever seemed to make you happy

You cruel and heartless excuse for a man

The nerve you had to treat me so badly

I have never had anybody make me feel so worthless

You made me feel like a useless piece of trash

I treated you like a king, put you on a pedestal

I gave you all of me

My heart and soul, my everything

All you ever gave me was heartache and pain

I wasn't asking for too much


Just wanted you to make me feel loved

Some good did come from this though

I know now you never really loved me

The only thing you loved was having control over me

You loved watching me crawl into a corner

But I do not need your validation anymore

I no longer need you to make me feel loved

I can do that all on my own

Thank you for being such a terrible person

Because it made me as strong as I am today

      Great and beautifully written poem, it is hard to leave a relationship when you love someone,but if they don't love you must leave and find someone who does love you .

      The hardest thing is to walk away, but when you are not getting what you need from a relationship, walk away you must. This is just awesome, well done.

      He should have been the one giving you the royal treatment. He doesn't deserve you. I am not an expert, but I know he will come back looking for you pleading for forgiveness to take him back. Don't believe any of his lies. This is just a way to reel you back in and once he has you where he wants, then he will go back to his old ways. I would just cut off all communication with him phone, text, email and tell him to get lost! If he doesn't, get a restraining order.

      Wonderful, succinct message and beautifully written. Billbuc's right, you know -- it's in the sharing of two -- not the catering of one! Best/Sis

      It's a no-win situation anytime we work so hard to make someone happy. Happiness comes from the relationship, and the two people loving each other. It should never be necessary to try and make a lover happy.

      Lovely work!
