My Heart Dies A little More Each Day


You donít even pause to say
the awful things you do. Not
even a thread of hope do I
have in your words of dread.

Placed upon my thoughts
every moment with you is
this overwhelming desire to
run away from you.

How could it be that I disturb
you so, how is it that you are
right in every thing under the
sun ?

To plead my case is of no avail,
to hope in words of fore thought
there is none. Your attacks seem
with out cause.

I joined with you because of my
love, but you are tearing apart
the very foundation it is held to.

A little love is lost each and every
time you answer in reply, a little
more is gone when you deny me
of that in which I give you so
freely, my open heart and
unlimited Love.

How far do you think you can
take this, without some kind of
reaction from my direction?
Do you really think I take all
of your remarks kindly and
with merit.

There is a limit to loves laws
and you have breached this
limit and are in danger of
penalty which will cost you
even though you do not see
It yet.

I give my love freely and willingly
but I will not let you destroy my
soul for your pleasure, which seems
to be the only answer I can obtain

I ask but you only reply with
yet more words of destruction
and so do not be surprised on
that day when you no longer
have me to spit upon, for that
day is when all of my love is
gone.

This poem is simply astonishing. I have felt this way in my last relationship. Unfortunately, I allowed him to brainwash me and hurt me so that I grew dependant on him. Luckily I found a way to escape, and am greatful that I did. You use a lot of self assertiveness towards the end, which is very good. I wouldn't have had the strength to do that. You're a better person than I    Glamourous job....I demand an encore :P

Hi SorrowsMystress,

I wish I saw a way out but I don't, I feel trapped and seem to be going back words right now. Thank you for your words of kindness.

Cerenity,
     I am overwhelmed by your work.  You do speak the truth.  Just remember this,

No matter how much you love,
If it will not be returned as freely as you give it,
then you by yourself can not save it.  

Believe me, I know.  I have been there, and it nearly killed me trying my best to save it.   But if you get the strength to let go, remember this --- you always have a friend in us, and you will NEVER be alone.




I am thinking about you, dear!

 ~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~
