Your Hell: My Poem

Updated on July 7, 2012

©copyright ALL RIGHTS RESERVED 2012

You saw me fall

my darkest day

then turned your back

and walked away.

My knees still bleed

the ache remains

like yesterday

straight through my veins.

I spent my life

this carousel

an up and down

of bloody hell.

My fingers spent

emotions gone

I can't believe

the lines you've drawn.

I never questioned

one command

and you pushed my face

into the sand.

I know my faults

my sins, my wrongs

with hook-in-cheek

your string-a-long.

I'd better serve

this sentence out

If I had known

that you'd sell-out.

Take everything

that I hold dear

then bring to light

my damndest fear.


is nothing new

just nothing

I'd expect from you.

I see your back

I see them all

I won't return

I'll never crawl.

The pain is fresh

but it will pass

a momentary

ugly gas.

I've never been

so sick so well

since you dismissed me

from your hell.

      Two in a row I've read from you & now you've gone two for two! Great work, I'm a new fan. This also, reminds me of something I've recently gone through. Being relateable will take you far.

      I'm looking at that one comment and shaking my head.

      Anyway, this is about as raw a poem as I am liable to read...raw as in exposed nerves raw...well done. So much said in so few are very good!

      Featured article: The importance of proper workout clothing

      Staying fit in the modern world is tougher than ever. It seems that we're always in a hurry to meet the next deadline, and when we do get a chance to enjoy a little rest and relaxation the telephone rings with yet another pressing task that just has to get done ASAP. And exercise? Well, we usually have to try to squeeze in an hour or two whenever we can.
