Ripped - Poem by Monica Rupazo

She does not mind what they do to her.
They can rip her heart,
And split her feelings into many pieces.
She might fail to bring them together,
But one thing that she knows,
One thing that she is sure of is,
“They can never change her”.

‘I will love as though I never hurt.
I will smile as though I never cried.
I will laugh as though I never lost.
I will trust again,
As though I was never betrayed.’
So she would think.

She would reach out to her toes
And pick up her shoes to her chest
To run the race of love once again,
And protect the one she loves now.

She would remove the expensive garments
And the glittering jewelry,
To save the life of him she loves now,
Because she still believes
Trust is worth another chance.

She would go a step further
And gain his trust, favour and future.
She would give him healthy babies
And turn another cheek on his impatience.

But of all the good things she might do
She would still turn back a little
To those she used to love
But betrayed her.

For after every hope of faithfulness and honesty,
She finds out, she never gave her all to her new lover.
A part of her was lost.
That part which could never be replaced.
