That's Why - Poem by Sheldon Allen Saluta

I used to love somebody
It’s always been him like nobody
Giving him all his satisfaction and prerogatives
That’s why, I’m so over protective

All of a sudden, hurts come
Fact, he loves someone, is like a bomb
Co’z all I know is he’s the center of my life but no
That’s why, I never been lay low

First hurt is like forever
Someone wants to heal mine but never
I fail to seek healing to my wounded and broken heart
That’s why, joy is always been in part

Pride is left to fend myself
Like a theft, he lets me drown in grief
He disregards my feelings and cuts my heart using knife
That’s why, I put my life in a shelf

    Sheldon I understand how the narrator feel when 'over protecting' someone you love (line 1) .
    The 'hurts become facts'-for sure.when it's found out that the one loved is someone else (line 5 &6) This happened to me many years ago-but I got over it and good thing I did because, there were other hurts waiting around the bend. But I was able to deal with only them because unlike the narrator, I didn't put my life in a shelf...things have a short shelf -life. I like your poem and give it a 10...but the vote does not register.

    I know exactly how this feels. You capture the emotions very neatly and your rhymes are quite clever! =) (Report) Reply
