Email Poem | Today's Poetry

 Love Need Not Be
A one night stand of false desire
A heart broken that once aspired
To love like once they loved before
To feel the ah in word adored

To cheat and break the vow you gave
To seek and find the chained now slave
To one who cares but not for you
A love once lost you still pursue

Broken dreams and nightmares lived
Abused by pain you still forgive
Heartfelt moments now thrown like trash
Sincere intentions broken like glass

A child you birthed without no love
Yet stayed the course with father of
They too abused and scarred the same
No real commitment and no last name

Punishment by hands that raised
Body yours pummeled now crazed
As if your life deserved no more
Escape now yours yet close the door

Love need not be but stay you do
Thinking that change will come for you
With one last strike he claims now two
Love need not be like this for child and you
Dedicated to every woman today that bares the scars of an abusive relationship and to those who
lost their lives waiting and wanting to be loved
