Oh, My Love - Poem by Doris McGohon

Oh, My Love

Oh, my love, why do you torture me?
How I have longed for
your words of love which are
only figments of the imagination
that has captivated this loneliness..
Why do you torture me with the very things
that are held dear and close to my heart?
The song that became our song
you have cheapened and used hurtfully.
Yet, I cry for loneliness when I hear it.
Oh, my love why do you torture me?
The cruelty of your tender words,
yet, so sweet to the taste, like honey,
once made me feel loved.
Oh, my love, why do you torture me?
Empty words the wind blows away
and gathers again leaving them
with someone new.
I was truthful
when I vowed my love to you.
Why do you torture me my love?
I will arise out of this morass,
become a woman of strength
that God means me to be
in spite of your cruel torturous ways!
