You Took More Than You Gave

You Took More Than You Gave
You say you want to be friends 
But I think I will hate you instead
You took more than you gave
Then put me in the grave
Of lovers left behind
How could you be so unkind?
You lead me on for two solid years
The happiest of times
Until I told you I need to be loved
Now I remain unloved
A victim of your crimes
Crimes of the heart
One of the women
That you left behind
You threw me away
Went on your merry way
You say you want to be friends
But I think I will hate you instead
You took my happy heart
You tore me apart 
You said I deserve more
Then closed the door
My broken heart is still bleeding
It’s your love I am still needing
So yes 
I think I will hate you instead

    Anne-Lise - I hated what he did to me - I didn't actually hate him. Guys want to be friends after a breakup...do we really need a man's friendship as a consolation prize? That was my thought behind the poem.

    Nobody is worth the hate. But, I can understand WANTING to feel that way towards another. Love, real love, shouldn't ever be an eye for an eye. But, again, I get why you do feel that way. I've been there too. Excelelnt job & nice to meet you!
