Taste of your own medicine

Updated on September 5, 2012

I knew one day you would say goodbye

I knew you would back out

and throw me like an abandoned puppy in a street to roam

I knew you would tear my heart into pieces

and burn my bridges to a crisp.

I had to believe in you.though

you were a straw to clutch

a last train to catch

before the night let to hatch

My heart had been grieving

My life had been like a frost heaving

paused,dark,no hope for retrieving

You told me when ,you came into the scene ,you would lick my wounds

from my previous fiasco

You would be something like Unisco

saving my debris and giving me a fresh fetus.

My rage inside rose up so high like a wave

as the memories tended to replay in my head

and flashed against my eyelids in my sleep

You thought love was a game

played so skillfully without rules

but in the end you got a taste of your own medicine

kicked,trashed,felt nothing within like an empty shell

when he left you for an other girl.

Don't come back

I am not the same or available

or even ready to hear your apologies,

mere excuses,feeble tales

What is gone is gone

Go find someone else to ensnare in your web,

someone to drain and leave like a withered petal

I am done

no longer your teddy bear

or a morning coffee you sip

while sitting on your rocking chair .

I am finally free,

free from you,

free from pain,

free from love,

free from spending nights sleeplessly,

free from going teary when you come across my mind,

free from writing epitaphs for our buried love,

I am free finally from falling in that sweet sour hole or evolving in the same circle.

      What she did was awful and unforgivable.It was hard for me in the beginning to purge her out of my mind but after awhile,I succeded to get over it.Time is the best healer.

      Your words are filled with so much emotion - definitely better off without her James!

      Thanks for visiting my hub on What is true love!

      Ah! It is my utter incapacity to feel love and write poetry like this that made me a dry fellow who writes article like the one you visited!
