Love Crushed

 ONCE THE LOVER OF MY LIFE

I WAS YOUR AND YOU WERE MINE

WE VOWED TO BE TOGETHER TIL THE END OF TIMES.

WE SMILED, WE LAUGHED AND SHARED MUCH MORE.

THOUGH IF I CONTINUE TO HOLD IT DOWN

WE'LL TURN OUT JUST FINE.

THOUGHT WE'LL BE TOGETHER AGAIN

AND BE ONE WITH BOTH OF US COMBINED.

WHILE ALONE ON THIS SEPARATION JOURNEY

YOU'VE TEND TO HAVE GROWN APART FROM ME

IT WAS LOVE I'VE FOUND IN YOU

BUT LUST WAS WHAT YOU FOUND IN ME

SO SELFISH AND SELF CENTERED

YOU HAVE MOVED ON AND ALLOWED SOMEONE ELSE TO ENTER

YOU HAD YOUR CHOICE

AND MADE YOUR PICK

NOW YOU MADE YOUR BED

AND SHE LIES WITH YOU IN IT

  THE TRUTH IS OUT AND NOW I KNOW

SO I'LL SHOW MY SELF THE EXIT DOOR

WHILE BLOOD TEARS FALL UPON THE FLOOR

I QUESTION "HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME"

MY HEART WAS YOURS TO CHERISH AND KEEP

YOU HOLD THE KEY THAT OPENS MY LOVE GATES

YET YOU WERE NOT SATISFIED AND THAT I HATE

WHAT HAPPENED TO "I M YOUR WIFE"

I TRIED TO MAKE IT WORK WITH MUCH STRIFE

YOU BACK STABBED ME

AND IN YOUR HAND LIES MY BLOOD ON THAT KNIFE

WHAT A WAY TO DO YOUR SO CALLED WIFE

IF IT WAS ME FOR YOU I WOULD HAVE GAVE MY LIFE

 YOU STATE "LET'S JUST BE FRIENDS"

BUT YOU DON'T GET IT

THIS IS WHERE ALL MEMORIES END

AND THE STATE OF BITTER BEGINS

I LOVED YOU

AND DIDN'T GET LOVE IN RETURN 

HERE'S THE END AND THE BRIDGE IS BURNED

NOW IT'LL TAKE A LIFETIME FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO GET A TURN

    Welcome to Poetry Soup!!! This is one heart felt write here. I was feeling your pain as I was reading. And, I can relate to this at this point of my life. (Not the person you're speaking of)..its hard to move forward when you've invested time in someone... But be strong, it will not take a lifetime. Enjoyed :)
