Confessions Of A Man - Poem by Corey Campbell

Yeah ladies I understand
all the things you went through.
I too carry the scars
from love's battle wounds.

Trust and insecurities
is now my shield and what I keep.
Living my life being alone
lonely nights I also weep.

Because love is what we yearn for
but then again, love has brought us pain.
The hurt from our past relationships
became our struggle and our strain.

You want me to open my heart
and trust you within?
Well, give me your heart
and not what covers it, artificial skin.

Cause I need it all
I got to have 100 percent.
And not breach of trust
with fraudulent intent.

Give me what I give you
I'll give you all that you need.
Don't put me down making threats
telling me that you will leave.

Cause then I will know
without love it will never last.
Thus, acknowledging your selfish threats
becoming another woman added to my past.

    Certainly, the confessions of a man that has suffered much pain. I might
    suggest that you read my poem called PAIN. It is wise to give true warnings
    to potential lovers because you don't want to waste your time in fruitless endeavors. I thought the structure of the poem was fine. The rhymes were
    also very good. The rhythm was a bit spotty but that takes time. All in all,
    very good.
