You Let Me Down

I waited every day

Hoping to see your face,

But I never saw it again.



You were supposed to

Be there for me, you were

Supposed to love me.



Momma, what did I

Do wrong? Why didn't

You love me anymore?



You left me with strangers,

Walked away from me

When I needed you to stay.



You let me down

In the worst possible way,

It hurt so much.



Even now my beating heart

Still breaks when I think

Back on those days.



Those days when I waited

To see your face just one

More time but never did.



Those days when I wished

You were her, hugging me,

Telling me she loved me.



But it's over now and I'm

Doing okay, I swear that

I will never be just like you.



You who chose her drugs

And alcohol over the one

Thing you should've chosen.



But it's too late for regrets,

And it's funny, after all this

Time, I can't seem to hate you...

    Unbearably sad. I hope it isn't real. Love, Joyce

    Unfortunately Joyce, it is real. But what's important is not letting it get you down. I've let my past control me instead of me controlling it to help guide me in the future. But I've decided not to let it hurt me anymore; what's done is done. I hope you enjoyed though! :)

    it's very hard when one lets us down,,, when the one person i depended on let me down i gave up... and believe me i hate him.... Enjoyed stopping by your poem tonight..have a good one,..LINDA

    Hey Linda! :) I know how you feel, but we just have to pick ourselves up off the ground, shake off the dust and walk away. Never give up, never let hate cloud your heart. I used to but that's not the way to live I've found. Instead I choose to be happy even if I'm alone. I hope you will find happiness through the pain as well. :) I'm glad you enjoyed :) <3
