My Gift - Poem by Mae Summerville

Please tell me it isnt true
What my intuitions tell me
They tell me your up to no good
But even a blind man could see

You think you are so slick
But in reality you are not
I am aware of everything
Yes, youve been caught

I gave you a gift
You didnt even have to earn it
But you took it for granted
and turned it into shit

You are a grown up man
You really should know better
Why do you do these things?
And force me to to write a dear john letter?

My patience has run out
Time for that has run its course
You have forced me to do this
I do it with no remourse

I gave you every chance
More than you ever deserved
My love for you was real
But I turned a blind eye to your reserve

But now my eyes are open
To everything thats going on
You sneak, conive and lie
So now goodbye, and be gone

You wont destroy my faith
I still love and respect men
Ill just be more picky next time
But yes, ill give my gift again

    I like the 'twist' in the end. No matter what, we can't stoo giving our heart to the one we love! (Report) Reply
