Because Of You - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Because of you it happened
I fell in love, you see
Because of you I’m hurting now
You fell out of love with me

You tell yourself you never did
That it was always her
But I couldn’t have these memories
Your mind must be a blur.

I’m healing now, the time will pass
A new man will come, it’s true
But for now I feel like crying
And it’s all because of you.

Written sometime in the 1980’s

    Written simply and from the heart Marilyn, and this speaks for all those who have had to cope with the experience too. Thank you for sharing this. Greetings from Fay. (Report)Reply
