In This Broken Moment - Poem by Laurette Nichole
In this broken moment, I'll finally tell the truth.
I cared. But I wasn't ready to.
But I couldn't love You.
I ignored everything that I ever wanted.
Because that's how life's been for me.
Everything I've ever wanted, has never been,
or has always been wrong for me.
I can't remember the last time someone gave and kept their word.
I shattered and re-built my soul everyday, I was so hurt.
Too hurt for love or friendship or care.
Too lost in pain to see your heart on your sleeve right there.
I was too hurt to accept that you wouldn't hurt me more.
Truth is I'm hurt, because I loved, and was loved, But I ignored.
