His unkind words pound in head,
his actions drove me insane.
He didn't know how sad I was,
he only knew my pain.

Now I've flown from his grasp,
I'm free from uncertainties.
But memories of his evil ways,
have kept this heart from ease.

Everytime I make a wish,
he'll be there to shatter my dreams.
Everytime I hear a laugh,
he'll twist them into screams.

No matter what I'm hoping for,
he'll tell me there's no chance.
No matter who I'm dreaming with,
he'll ruin that romance.

I can't escape the thoughts of him,
he'll always, always be there.
In the mirror he'll laugh at me,
it doesn't matter where.

And whenever I look at a man,
I'm overcome with fear.
I'm afraid he'll be just like,
that devil in the mirror.

Girl, was he really like that? You KNOW you deserve better than that! It's probably only a poem, but if it's all true, you got to move it on up!

No woman should be treated like that. You have captured that evil in a mirror. So now, every morning, I guess you must wake up to look evil in the eyes. Very well written. ^_^

DAMN, him. DAMN him all to hell! Seriously, I really despise people who use such power to destroy the joy of others. I hope he and his effects are left far, far behind. Buried so deep that he can feel the flames of hell itself.
You write well. Keep them coming, and thanks for looking in on my own.

it got something completely different out of this poem...our inner critic, our negative voice that tells us we'll never find happiness...it read very well from that perspective

Thanks Elvira! This poem was difficult to write because my experience wasn't really that bad. It just sort of...POPPED into my head...
