Instead - Poem by Neo tshegofatso Molefe

Instead of lifting me up
You left me to fall
Instead of loving me
You hurt me to my soul
Instead of welcoming me
You showed me the way out
Instead of building me, building us
You destroyed both
Instead of being a God sent
You simply became a nightmare
Instead of being my strength
You became my weakness
Instead of brightening the room
You made everything difficult to see
Instead of meaning everything to me
You mean nothing to me
Instead of holding on
You quickly let go
Instead of cherish what I had with you
You made a good work of erasing all that
All on your own
I'm not sure if I can forgive you
