I have written poetry for many years; The oldest one I have in my possession was written when I was 16. The following poem, I wrote on Saturday morning. I don’t know where it came from, but I felt I needed to write it.
Please excuse me as it’s raw material, but I tend not to reread through my poetry as it’s just a way for me to deal with being down. I very rarely share this kind of writing, so it’s a bit different. With that being said, I hope you enjoy.
Her love for him she thought was strong,
His love for her was truly wrong.
It was never love and always lust,
It lacked all good things, even trust.
He broke her heart a thousand times,
Then proceeded to break her mind.
When he was done he left her there,
And when she cried he didn’t care.
But time has passed and she realised,
The pain she felt has minimised.
Resentment lies on some bad days,
But memories fade into a haze.
She’s better now that much is true,
She’s better now because of you.
