A Victim of Love

Updated on December 16, 2017

I Have Been A Victim

My heart has been plucked out, torn apart and still bleeds

Each time I think of it, its a pain without words to describe what i feel

The shots you fired pierced the inner depths of my soul

Ive been dragged through a fire of wickedness and hell is now a place so cold

I put my life on the line and i had in return my heart been toyed

All things have an end and i prayed we would end in joy

The tears i shed are evident the waves of emotions in me are overflowing

But this river is soon to dry 'coz i have found my new strength and this chapter is closing

Gave you my all from the tip of my hair and everything else without excuses

But you gave nothing in return and left me with scars and bruises

I couldnt tell what love was from all the deception and those lies

I managed to pull through regardless the insults onto my soul and all the fights

These smiles are nothing but a way to cover up what i have been through

I guess you never cared about me or was ever bothered if what i felt was true

I still manage a smile despite the ruins 'coz i know i will be stronger

But leaving me in distress was never the way i thought we would be over

The soul and strength i lost all those times i shall regain

And as much as it hurts, i never wish the same for you to be repaid

I've been taught a lot as my doors now have maximum security

And there is much to hope for and live up to now that im free from your obscurity

I fell into your trap by what seemed to be a fragile heart

This book i am living ain't over but these new chapters are with happiness that i start

In these pages will i never allow the fake to confuse me with the genuine

My happiness and joy i will not allow to be ruled by anyone nor be in ruins

These episodes are ones that will see me laugh all the time

And i will be better and it shall be well even through the darkest of times

      Oh this is a felt piece--I can feel the weight of the sadness--well penned!

      I always say a broken person will break others. It's so scary to trust your heart to someone who is blind to see how rare and precious love is. Thank God, pain doesn't last always.
