Nor Well I Ever Be - Poem by Katherine Kay Graven

For many years my heart has been under your quite manipulating control
Waiting to be cherished in the darkness of your vaporous shadow
Wondering if you will ever gain the respect for me you promised you would have
Leaving me wanting to be envision as the woman of your dreams in the wake of your endless sleep

When I think of you I feel only pain and endless regrets
Because now I have no feelings to feel only cold feelings of emptiness are left
You make me feel as if I am not worthy to be considered or loved
Hey baby, you was wanting a poem so don’t you dare tell me to shut up.

I have always been lower than last priority in every body’s life…
So why should I expect anything different from my loving husband when you know my family life was full of hellish strife

For many years I put you first and tried to make your dreams come true
But in reality I was never the right woman for you

NOR WELL I EVER BE

You stomp my dreams into the ground
I can’t count the times you pushed me away and silently put me down
My passions is all I have left but you have no desire to share them with me
I beg you to listen and find my voice important
But all I get is ignored or the words “God Damn”

So tell me baby
Why are you still around
Better yet…

WHY AM I

Now don’t you go and say
I have found someone else
After the hell I have been through with you
The last thing I want is another selfish inconsiderate ass

Why am I not worthy of beautiful things.
Important days don’t mean a thing
Why am I not worthy of a beautiful home
For ours is only a house
Why am I not worthy of the love a man
For there is more to that than sex
Why am I just worthy for someone who does not care

Why do I put up with it.

So you have made a point to place us where you want to be
You have made a point to make all your dreams come true
And in the process forgotten about me
You have made a point to make my passions silly
And not want to play a part
You have made a point to destroy my enter being
And blacken my fragile heart

I do not want to be where you are
For it is making it to where I can’t breath
I do not even think I care
For feeling for me are no longer there
Love for me well I will tell you like you told me
I am numb so you get the meaning

Why did you ask me to marry you
After you made a point to break my heart into
Why did you make a fool of yourself
And in the process made me look like one too
Why did you take every dream I had
And made it seem like they come from the depts. of hell

Why do I stay….

Words mean nothing to me today…
So don’t waste them on me….

So take this poem and cram it were
Not even you can see.


Your loving wife.

    Why am I not worthy of beautiful things.
    Important days don’t mean a thing
    Why am I not worthy of a beautiful home
    For ours is only a house
    Why am I not worthy of the love a man
    For there is more to that than sex
    Why am I just worthy for someone who does not care... love, despair., loss of all hope, desire to be loved and cared for, the constant feeling that i am unwanted and unloved. alll these you have pictured very well in this poem. turn your hear to the poor and needy. you will find rest for your soul. a simple advice from my own experience. tony
