Poetry That Speaks Of Love Lost 2

Updated on November 28, 2010

More Poems About Betrayal...

Bloody Avoidance

Hot and dripping in sweat I see sleep in his eyes.
Lost in a nightmare I seek to go inside.
Yet inside are images that haunt a life of lies.
To keep me from knowing, carefully he hides.

Until another spoke words of real pain.
The location where I would leave my sane mind.
The moment their blood began to fall like rain.
When I ran away from becoming one of their kind.

Murder keeps taking my soul on a path.
No clearing for ahead movement until cut away.
Forward nothing to believe in, behind my bloody wrath.
Stuck in nowhere alone, broke, this is all I have today.

This Chaotic Sieve

Life speaks loud of my spiraling sanity.
Out of control my mind creates illusions.
Time after time smashing a new calamity.
Taking hold of all I am adding to my confusion.

For freedom I run to no where.
For the safety of unworthy worms, not fit to live.
Baffled I am nearing a life with out care.
Morals fast passing through this chaotic sieve.

Straight down hill goes all the joy in my life.
Nothing special but the way I look.
I pray for a way out of this strife.
Wanting back the dignity finding them took.

I sit and stare at pictures of them dead.
My need for blood keeps me from going home.
Home my ass, mine is gone by his words, carefully fed.
Knowing what I know, I aimlessly roam.

      This poetry is very moving and full of emotion. Life can sometimes roll the dice a funny way and this happens. I am glad you are getting beyond it. It's a struggle, but life always is anyway. I wish better things for you. :)

      Your poetry is beautiful. Just like I have told my daughter, sometimes the best therapy is to pray and write about it.

      Thank you for your comment...As the dates on the poems copyright indicate, these poems were written about 4 years ago...and poetry is how I heal so I can state without hesitation that I am doing well and no longer see their blood...The lessons I learned from that period of my life is priceless and I thank The Lord that I am alive, happy, and content. Single also...~lauging~...that it the one thing I have not been able to do...move towards another relationship. Finding my husband and best friend in bed set me back. I will find the right person someday!

      Peace and God Bless...Becky Jo

      You will overcome this awful time. I know you don't believe that just now. Take it out on your poetry - your poetry will just get better as will your life!
