I can't hate you
because I remember the day
that you stole my heart.
You took it fast and strong
and embedded it into your very-being.
You kept it there
yet you didn't treat it well.
You caused it pain
took away it's strength
destroyed it
shrinking it slowly
causing it to fade
into a lifeless object.
You couldn't protect it
or keep it safe,
You couldn't enjoy it's warmth
and the fact that it came from me.
You should have kept hold of it
embraced it for all it was worth,
yet you shattered it
into a thousand pieces
and inbetween all of that was me,
caught in the crossfire
of your art of manipulation.
But the years have gone on
and faith restores itself.
I have come to know
that I could never hate you
for what you have done
for what you made me feel.
Because there is still a part of me
that lives on
in you.
The heart that you took is still shattered
and crushed into pieces
but love is still there,
the gift that I gave to you.


I forgive you...

I enjoyed this 'write'!

I am very fond of:

“…I remember the day
that you stole my heart.
You took it fast and strong
and embedded it into your very-being.”;

And, even more so, of:

  “…caught in the crossfire
       of your art of manipulation.”;

as well as:

“…faith restores itself.”

Applause!

The melancholy is felt and your heartsong is heard ... I hear it saying "collect my pieces and mend me to be whole again".

Lovely write.

I have been in these shoes.. the toughtest emotion to actually show... is forgiveness

"The heart that you took is still shattered
and crushed into pieces
but love is still there,
the gift that I gave to you."

"I forgive you..."

forgiving is the first step to healing and your shattered heart is now ready to come whole again...  love is a gift that many take for granted!  But even so, we are better people for being able to give it without regret... and heal to love again!

Beautiful write...  enjoyed it!

I believe that once you have loved someone, no matter what they do there will always be a part of you that loves them...the power of the love may become less but it is always there...when you love again you just love differently because the person you love is different...Well said...I know the feeling well...*Big Hugs*

sometimes we never are able to live up to expectations...and some know no better, for it is how we are raised to believe who we are....

this ached...

To forgive is a very hard thing to do!!!
