Hurt (To My Husband)

How can you hurt me?
And feel nothing at all
And fail on your promise
To catch me when I fall?

Does it make you feel better?
When you call me bad names
Does it boost your ego?
So you don’t feel no pain?

I was always so proud
To be your wife
And had all these dreams with you
Of a wonderful life

But when you walked out
And gave up without trying
You took a piece of my heart
And left me with crying

We're over, we're done
You no longer care
You made your decision
How it that fair?

You shut down and turned off
Every feeling you had
And left me with regrets
And memories we had

I’ve tried and tried
And you keep saying were through
It makes me wonder
Did I ever matter to you?

How can you hurt someone?
You promised to always love
And act like it doesn’t bother you
When it’s obvious it does

But you’ve made this choice
And it doesn’t matter that I’m blue
And I’m crazy to say this
But I’ll always love you!

    I am currently going through a divorce to a man I vowed to always love. He is someone I always looked up too and was proud to be his wife. I don't want this divorce but I am not fighting it because it just makes it hurt more. I just don't know how to make him see that what we have and can have is worth fighting for. So in a minimum of words I have expressed my devotion and undying love to a man I thought I knew but now it's clear that I guess I never really knew him at all. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
