Pleasures and Pain

I died today and you didn't care.
You never looked back.
How could you say that you cared?

For all that I gave, this is what I get.
You took my heart and tore it apart.

When all my pleasures turned to pain,
I built a wall made out of shame.

My world came crumbling down
because of you,
But what hurts most,
is that I knew you wouldn’t be true.

I tried to tell myself,
None of my feelings would get involved.
But to my surprise,
I wasn’t so strong.

You knew what you were doing,
You manipulate all that you say.
You said I was different,
But it was only for the night,
That you wanted me to stay.

“Needs”, I heard them say.
You had needs to be fulfilled.
But how many do you need?
Are you willing now to grow your seed?

You never asked if I was okay,
“Just call me later”
Is all you’d say.

And late at night,
I lie awake.
Still thinking of you,
No matter how my heart aches.

I make myself realize,
What you’re all about.
But when I dream of you,
My tears still come flowing out.

I knew from the start,
How you’d only break my heart.
So, it’s my fault
For thinking you’d make a new start.

babeluv73,

I feel the pain of the broken heart.  You pour out your feelings in verse very well. I hope things are better soon.

There is so much pain here, and you have expressed it well.

I can certainly relate to this
The pain of knowing doesn't make the feelings go away for good. They do still linger until you decide to move on
