Why - Poem by Nakia Crespin

My heart knew no boundaries until i met him,
The sadness of my eyes only grew darker,
The free spirited girl that was once wild and free,
Is now trapped behind walls of anger and hatred,
The glow that i once had in my face is now covered with tears,
Trying to cover the emptiness that loneliness brings with a 'Beautiful' face,
Making eye contact but never more than 1 second,
because i'm to scared tto let anyone even detect the slightest bit of pain in my eyes,
If they only knew would they stare at this beautiful face altered with makeup,
I try to express myself as i once did, I mena before i met him,
He took the innocent spirit I had, and threw it in the fire,
It still burns as though all the tears I've cried has not turned this fire out,
It; s spreading like crazy, it ahs been for the last year and 2 months,
The time I could've been making a life, turned into aliving hell,
I don't dare ask why anymore, cause the answers are always differen,
Anthe fire gets even more out of control,
The answers I seek to explain, to try to give me reason to explain why this 'man' hurt me
Is the reason i can not let go,
Wishingeven one answer could give reasoning behind his actions,
But even if I had an answer it would no be good enough,
Cause everytime i look at our son, I can't understand why.

    Commendable work, Nakia...Much potential within you.Be watchful of spelling & spacing(conjoined wordage) .You appear to have a natural flair for impact verbage & command...Utelize your creative side to employ more imagery/pictorial depiction...AND KEEP THAT PEN PUMPING!
