The Monster "Id" (Poetry)

Updated on May 25, 2013

I waited for you
Three long years
Believing this was a test
And there would be an end to my tears.

I thought if I loved you hard enough
If I endured for so long
That one day you would come to your senses
Return back where you belonged

But this wasn't a fairytale
There would be no happy ending
I would never be good enough
No matter how far I tried bending

I tried to let go
I tried to move on
But living life without you
Felt so wrong

Total darkness
Love turned to hate
The depths of my scorn
Evil could never recreate

I said over and over again
I dreamed of a thousand ways
You might meet your end

I replayed in my mind
The exact moment of my revenge
From the words "I'm happy for you"
To the executioner's syringe

I smiled for you would pay
Pay for what you did
You murdered the man who loved you
And gave birth to this monster "Id"

I tried to let go
I tried to move on
But living life without you
Felt so wrong.

      A very sad and angry poem. I hope your heart can be healed. I understand the sadness here, understand all to well. Blessings.

      Painful and beautifully written. What a struggle it can be letting go of someone who has already let you go.

      Great concept. I encountered a 2 fold dilemma. 1st others countered my efforts. 2nd, when I became handicapped they created an imaginary me.

      Very touching and beautiful write.I like it.I can relate to it. Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.Voted up

      A really powerful narrative.The person in the verse sounds as though they have really been put through the wringer of some kind of betrayal,which just rips the heart clean out-there doesn't seem to be an easy solution to the pain,and the only valid response I can muster ,if unfaithfulness has reared its ugly head,is the entreaty of prayer,and to find another,who will be one's very own heart.

      Yours Sincerely,
