You say to me you speak the truth
But I hear only lies
I can't believe it took so long
For me to realize
That never was it me you loved
But just the things I do
Oppressed, insulted and controlled
Back bent by serving you
You took my heart but scorned my love
And I cannot forgive
The guilt and blame you laid on me
The way you made me live
I did the only thing I could
I packed and walked away
Three years have passed with no regrets
My life began that day
And to this day I hear you say
You want back together
But when I left and said good-bye
It was meant forever

great poem, rhythm is awesome. You really captured your broken heart in this one. I just hope you can forgive this person. Unforgiveness only hurts one person. YOU not them. That is all I have to say. Keep up the great work.

Excellent. A wise man once said, Do anything for a person you once loved.....except love them again. This poem is a very nice way of saying, "you blew it, b--ch."
