Treasure Island

Hurt


This heart of mine still aches in sadness
Trying to make sense of all this madness
My life, thus far, was it a lie
Sick of all the lies, had to say goodbye

Secret tears still flow
My heart just had a hard blow
Losing all i have treasured
For you, it was just pleasure

Have to cut me off completely
You have hurt me, oh, so deeply
I thought i was your wife
The one you said is your life

No one will ever know
How hard i try, not to blow
I feel alone, rejected and yes, afraid
But i know with time it all will just fade

Poet's Notes about The Poem

been married for 21 years, only to wake up and find that my husband has other women in his life for the past 5 years and think its not a big deal....cause he comes home to me every night...i gave him 21 loyal years and he was never seconds to me, , , so, i dont see why i should except me being his seconds...the only thing i asked him always, was to be honest and tell me if and when he is not happy, but, i guess, he was just a coward, couldnt be honest....hurt like hell, but, i have to move forward

    Wow, that is indeed harsh. The amount time, groomed to love one way. Trying to pretend it is okay. Hurt so bad and knowing the pain won't just go away. No matter night, day, or moons phase. Wishing for the everlasting escape. A given comfort becoming a luxury that no longer fits your finger. But the mark is still there, to remind you at one time it was something you did wear. Indeed this is a great poem thanks for sharing it. (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
