Cry For Me - Poem by Scarborough Gypsy

Cry for me, please cry for me,
I want you to feel hurt,
I want the pain to dig at you,
And make you feel like dirt

I hope your dreams are nightmares,
And all your days are bad,
I hope you’re never satisfied,
Just always feeling sad

I want you to feel miserable,
And never feel happy,
But most of all, in place of this,
I want you to want me.

    Oh memories of the past, I too was there at one time. I'm so glad I grew up and realized this emotion was just a waste of time. We should enjoy any time that we had in a loving relationship and when things change and it no longer exists at least we can be grateful that it ever happened. You show a very true picture of the feelings of many. Excellent poem---Melvina--- (Report)Reply

    This poem evokes an urge for me to cry. Though my tears would not be for you. They are for me. You have awaken a beast within me with this emotion-laden piece. I am with you as many could testify as well, the same. I am, and have been in this very place before. It can sometime feel like an old shoe and at others, like a shard of glass cutting across your heart. This poem was most powerful and your ability to capture so well the pain on paper is truly a talent. (Report)Reply

    Been there, done that, and misery loves company. Keep writing, however. It eases the pain. (Report)Reply

    Ouch broken hearts suck! What is that all about wanting to hurt someone you once (and sometimes still do) loved! ? Felt the same myself, Moyaxx (Report)Reply

    pain is always a mystery
    and sometimes
    the conclusion is not what you expect
    good work

    We all want the person who broke our heart to suffer as we suffer. I like the way you express it in this poem. Most of all, I like the ending - so true.

    It is an intense quagmire of misery, a broken heart. Of course there's pain, suffering.... in excruciating doses. I applaud your honesty. I will also be reading more of your poetry. (Report)Reply

    A very honest poem. To me as a reader, it reinstates the fact of how intense our emotions can be at such a time as a broken marriage, etc. Now I'm going to read more of your poems... (Report)Reply

    No Janice, not from my childhood. Though, it was interesting to hear how you had interpretted it. Though, I think that is the mother in you coming out. My inspiration here actually came from someone braking my heart and it was written for them. I wanted them to feel the pain I was going through.

    This was one from your childhood I guess. It has the sound of a child who is crying out for love.? ? ? ? ?
    I may be way off here. Let me know.

    Gave you a ten
