Liars Want To Be Caught - Poem by Dakota Ellerton

You are a terrible liar,
a horrible secreter.
Somedays, I think you crave my tears.
As if I couldn't sink any lower,
you purposley flash the things that burn,
the words that sting.
Leave me, or love,
not a word more.
How could I be expected to stay now,
with the hateful feelings you birthed.
Not just you, everyone like you.
Every man, no every boy in my life,
has been cruel at one point.
You've put me down,
you've reminded me what I've lost.
Rubbing dirt in my open wounds,
burns more then the hate from your eyes.
Is suffering all you desire?
I beg you no more.
I need not hear you've slept with a loose woman,
I need not know detail.
I do not care.
I do not need you,
or anyone like you.
You bring me to the bridge of insanity.
You are the reason I can no longer stand on my own feet.
You destroyed what little remained.
Does that satisfy you?
