You Told Me You Loved Me - Poem by Regina Witherspoon
You told me you loved me….that’s what I heard you say-
When you kiss me and you hold me, it’s so passionately.
In too deep, within a matter of weeks-
Curious if this is love that lies in between these sheets.
Can’t catch the rhythm…my heart is beating faster and faster-
Pastor just spoke on this…He says it’s a disaster waiting to happen.
The instant connection one would call it Love at first sight-
But not even Mary Kay could cover up all these Lust, Love & Lies.
So discreet about who you are and what you do-
Still trying to figure out how I woke up so sore and visibly bruised.
They say one night of passion…can cause you a lifetime of pain-
Tears drench my face, you promised…you said you’d never hit me again.
Please bay….take me back, I’m sorry…I would never hurt you and I didn’t mean to do you wrong-
I’ve never been in Love before, I was scared…thought you were trying to play me and lead me on.
You told me you loved me and I sized it up to be true-
I’ll give you one more chance, so no…I won’t leave you.
When I look in his eyes, I see so much rage-
I don’t know what happened in his past relationships, but he’s taking it out on me almost every other day.
He tries so hard to cover up his deeply rooted scars-
Where did the hours, days and months go…how did it even get this far? ?
2months pregnant and something tells me to keep it-
Snuck and got an abortion, shh...that’s my little secret.
You told me you loved me, that’s what I thought I heard you say-
I remember when you used to kiss me and hold me, so passionately.
But behind each hit became more and more excuses-
This time a police report, bigger bandages and pictures to prove it.
I’ve distanced myself this time a little more I must say-
Went out, had a drink…now we’re all lovey dubby til the next day.
This time I’mma leave him alone…& he bet not say nothin’ to me-
Man……I hate when we fight; Day 2- rubbing my eyes, vision so blurry.
Fox 8 Action News…woman body found on the freeway-
“Angel ‘Sugar-Bone’ Bradley” dead and gone as of yesterday.
This must be a sign God has given indeed-
Not only did I know her, but that battered and bruised up woman could’ve easily been me.
In Loving Memory of “Angel ‘Sugar-Bone’ Bradley”
