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.
