Why Doesn't She Just Leave?!
More Poetry >>
You'll never know how much you hurt me,
For I don't even know myself,
All I know is,
I feel I have no pride left.
You stole, you pushed, and always lied,
Kept on the pretense even when you cried,
Promised to change and things would be,
OK, and fine and that you loved me.
I stood by you through thick, medium and thin,
Even when everyone said I should just give in,
I still stayed there and fought your fight,
Now I can see everyone else was right.
I feel so much anger I want you to feel,
Only then I think you'll see this is real,
My head is mashed but my heart is numb,
For loving you so long I must have been dumb.
You never loved me you're too immature,
And I'd like to say you can hurt me no more,
But with all this anger I've built up inside,
It feels as though a part of me has died.
You had my heart in the palm of your hand,
And crushed is like it was just a rubber band,
To you life is a breeze you see things as a game,
But to me, love is a feeling; much more than a name.
Get out of my head and leave me to move on,
Physically you've left but your shadow stays on,
It follows me close so I sleep with a light,
Trying to protect my dreams from you at night.
To those close I might seem to have survived,
But behind closed doors nobody knows how I cry,
A smile is a great way to disguise,
The pain and the aching I feel inside.
