Because I Loved You

Because I loved You Because I loved you - you took advantage of me. Because I loved you - you made a fool out of me. What did I do, to deserve all this? If you didn't love me - you should've said so. You didn't and my life was destroyed. Because I loved you - I gave you my love. I did what you told me - thinking it right. What happened later, just broke my heart. You accused me falsely of things I didn't do. You didn't believe me, when I said it wasn't true. I cried many tears for days and many nights, thinking what happened to the love that I thought was so right. What happened to the love that we had? I left and decided to let you go free. The day will come and you will remember all the wrong that you did to me. I have now forgiven you - it wasn't your fault. I was the one that loved you. You were just playing a part. A good actor - you turned out to be. Because I loved you - I'm writing these words. Don;'t feel bad - it will do no good. When we can't love someone - it isn't our fault.....

    This is a very special person... we can either continue to hate, or forgive, those who have harmed us. I'm glad she decided on the latter course. Well done Lucilla! Best wishes, Keith

    A heart felt poem full of pain and yet no anger. Full of passion and caring all captured so well in your words. Very well written.

    Wow, the pain spoken within your words, as I know they were all true, as they have happened to many of us, including me! I really enjoyed reading this amazing poem this evening my friend! What a powerful message you have brought to all of us, something we can all relate to!

    Lucilla, dear, this is a very good one and I hope you got over this person. I liked how you said "it wasn't your fault. were just playing a part." I think life throws us into such circumstances where one of the partners is indeed playing a part in the end. This poem shows great understanding of a failed relationship.
