My Hurt to Bear

I told you my innermost thoughts 
But you never gave them a thought.
I shared my dreams with you
But you never paid any heed.

I gave you all the love I had in me
But you failed to give it back.
I cared for you utterly & completely
But the truth was you never cared at all.

I was a fool to have given you my time
When all you did was waste my time.
I should have let you go much before
Than to have kept you close to hurt me. 

I let you in though I was apprehensive
The mistake I should have never made.
I let you make me feel good about myself
When all you did was to tear me further.

I let you lie to me for all that you said 
When I should have refused every bit of it.
I know now what a colossal blunder I made 
To let you take a piece of me & throw it away.

    A sad awakening from love scorned. Still and all, lost love takes from and leaves something in us, ready for the best that fate has in store for us. Be blessed! Hugs and smiles from the land of thousand isles :D Kim

    I've been there. I don't miss those times. But, I'm glad they happened. Those experiences allowed me to refine my heart into what & who really matters in my life. Nice job on this!
