Instead - Poem by Neo Molefe Wa Peloeahae Peloeahae

Instead of loving me
You hurt me to my soul
Instead of ushering me into your life
You showed me the way out
Instead of building me, building us
You destroyed both
Instead of being a God sent
You became a nightmare in my life
Instead of brightening the room
You made everything difficult to see
Instead of meaning the world to me
You mean nothing to me
Instead cherish what I had with you
You made a good job of erasing all that

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was my first poem
I wrote this poem for my ex
I'm glad I did because I didn't know
That I could write
