You Had My Love - Poem by Kagiso Mogale

You always found filth in all I uttered
Shattered everything I touched
And shut every door that opened before me
Taught me heaven is beyond my reach
And silly me took your teachings to heart
oh I took everything you preached
Because you were everything to me

You knew you had my heart
And I let you to it
You knew how to make me smile
But I guess you enjoyed seeing me cry
Sometimes I wonder if you have a heart
If you are human

Time and time you'd let me fall
& secretly rejoice in my misery
And I'd let you to it
What was I to do?
You had my heart and you knew it
You knew me and I thought I knew you

You had love and you blew it
You'll never find love
Because you are not a fool enough
To fall in love


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Most of you would think this was about a cruel lover/beloved who regularly ill-treated his/her patner, but it not. It's actually about the very person you trust with your own life... the one you ussualy confide to.....I'M STILL OPEN TO CRITISISM.... REMEMBER THIS ISN'T REALLY A POEM...THIS ARE JUST STRAIGHT TO THE POINT SENTIMENTS... HOPE YOU ENJOY READING IT.. FEEL FREE TO SUGGEST MORE LINES

    Sometimes, we are so blinded by love and trust that we begin to believe that what
    the other person says is the absolute truth. Only when we begin to move away, we
    begin to realise our folly.
    Kagiso, you have very beautifully projected the feelings and emotions of a confidante
    through simple yet eloquent words. Loved reading this poem.
