Shattered Promises
By: Amy M. Kennedy


You said that you loved me
But we both know that was a lie
Why wonít you just let me be?
It was apparent you donít love me
In the way that you said good-bye

You told me forever, but lies are all you speak
Breaking my heart, but you donít really care
You want to hurt me, make me feel weak
Wish I had never fallen for you
This pain becoming too much to bear

I shared with you the feelings from my heart
You told me that you felt the same
If thatís the caseÖthen why are we apart?
Your kind of love I donít want
What is this sick twisted game?

But every-time I look at you, deeper I fall
You just laugh at me though
You broke down my defenses, destroyed my wall
In you I trusted with all that I am
Thought our love was suppose to flourish and grow

Shattered promises are all that remain
Broken dreams lay scattered
You try to push this onto me, make me take the blame
So sick of your behavior, I have had enough
Made a mockery of my love... left me feeling tattered

Wish I didnít love you, however I still do
Somehow I will make it through this living hell
Within time I will no longer love you
This is what you wanted; itís obvious to me
Donít worryÖI will get over this hold you have on meÖthis spell.



†~Live today as though it were your last but prepare for tomorrow as though it were here~

Aimster,

Quite a poem.  I feel some strong emotions went into this one.  Did you show it to "him"?

Aimster,
Oh how I feel your pain....I am there now also.  This was a great poem full of very strong emotions.  I hope that things get better for you soon.  Remember, when one door closes, another door opens.  we just have to find it.  Best of luck!!!

Powerful Poem indeed.  It is great that you have decided to forget him and move on with your life.

 The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship."

--Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fantastic writing..sometimes I feel like I am under a spell..I am wondering why do I still love someone that doesn't want to return my love?  As you said love should flourish and grow...not deteriorate into pain and sorrow...that is not love...the pain is the end result when only one loves and the others heart is broken because they realize that they fell in love all by themselves..   James
