Hide Myself From You - Poem by Marcquiese Burrell

I sometimes wonder how i do it
allow you time after time, day after day to hurt me
Need a little of your attention but you neglect me and feel no guilt
Barely say anything to me
Problems go unaddressed and with your friends
you talk me up behind my back
But still and yet you feel the same
with those words of yours I searched in i've found the questions to the answers inside my mind
you don't know anything
you don't know how it makes me feel
that I'm trully hurting inside
but you've never asked
I will myself to fill you in
All of my life I've been in love with someone
this was before your time
then you came into my life being the second someone I've ever really loved
At first you've took my heart and stored it inside a locket full of happy memories
you promised me the world, your love, your loyalty and i've trusted you fully
until the day you've took my heart and thrown it against the wall, watched me bleed out, dying before you i lay there as i rest in piece
You could have traveled a road less destructive
It would of been easier for me to deal
instead you filled my heart with pain
Not noticing anything of the changes
I run away from you, hiding inside myself
locking me away for eternity longing to be freed
I look back at us and this is what you've done
A permanent scarring of my heart
nothing can fill this void
the desire to love is no longer there
only the fear your actions caused me
when i have tried so hard to build the perfect happy ending
