A poem by me.
You can say I’m being petty
You claimed to care, but not really
I told you my insecurities and apparently you weren’t hearing me
What happened to the days where you couldn’t breathe if you weren’t near me?
Where did all the time go you promised to spend with me?
You promised to be a friend to me
You misused words like Love & “Meant to be”
I mean I would love to know what you meant, see
You said you’d found your wife yet you neglect me so easily
I mean effortlessly without trying all all
You went from “I always want to hear from you” to not answering my call
I tried. I mean I really stuck my chest out and stood tall
Every time you asked me to trust you, I did with my all
And now all I have are memories of what you claimed would be
Reminiscing about that one time I thought I had claimed my dreams
Playing on repeat every lie you sang to me
Said you wanted me for always, in all ways
On top of me between my legs, you pumped your lies inside my head
And I fell for it
After all I have survived, I fell for it
After reclaiming my life, I believed you
As you were explaining your lies, I received you
I’m angry but mostly at myself
I should’ve known better than to think you were different from the rest
You called me wife, but obviously you weren’t ready
Asked me to Love you then refused to hold your heart steady
Said you want a help meet, I tried to assist and you wouldn’t let me
So now I’m done trying. It’s best that you just forget me.
