What Goes Up Must Come Down

Updated on December 12, 2014

When you walked out of my door,
I begged you to stay
as I fell to the floor.

My heart sunk down
to the pit of my stomach.
I didn't know who to be
without your influence.

You didn't laugh,
but I detected a smile.
Once insecure, your ego
shot up 10 miles...

and I was damaged for life.
Isn't it crazy how things work out in life?
I perfected the signature I'd have
once I became your wife.
Then, you broke my heart;
not once but twice.

Now, what are you doing here?
Are you really gonna say
you ran from love cause you were scared?
Is that supposed to be an acceptable excuse to me?
Don't talk about memories.
I can no longer get pulled into that place, emotionally.
You don't get anymore tries at hurting me.
You hurt me enough already.

Do you remember when,
you pushed me off of you
and said to let you go?

How about the time, you said
you didn't love me
and I was only good for one thing?

Let me jog your memory
on the night you said you were better off
and that I needed to quit acting soft.

You said getting over me wasn't hard.

Why are you calling again, huh?
How many times did you try replacing me
over the past couple of months?

How many times did you find yourself
calling on me just to see I wasn't there?

How many times have mutual friends told you
I was fine
and there's no room for you in my life?

How many times did you believe them?

I'm not gonna be mean like you were to me,
but it looks like you have a problem
with letting go.

Set me free now, I forgive you.
I'm a new woman and I wouldn't be
who I am without you.

I just don't love you anymore.

      Reading your profile once more Ryem, gives me a small understanding of your poetry. Also, a funny thing to say, but Eminem's poetry reminds me of my own creativity. Great song.

      I once re-connected with a woman and married her, but yes, generally we need to be wary of past pains that stab within the Soul. excellent poetry!

      Ouch. The pain that can be felt by the reader. Words cut deep. Funny how the tables turn, though, when the hurt starts to lessen and life is lived again.

      the pain of forced and hurtful separation stains our hearts and it is never a good thing to go backwards. a beautiful poem that highlights how the grass is greener on the other side until you get there and want what you gave up.

      An emotional read, thank you for sharing something so close to your heart i hope it helps others who can empathize with such pain
