Don’t

Don’t bullshit me with your
“I love you’s”
None of them bears witness
To how I grieve
Of witnessing you walk away
Everyday.

Don’t fool me with your
“I miss you”
Nothing compares to the pain
You inflicted on me
For being near yet so far away.

Don’t lull me with your
“I wanna be with you”
Nonsense, though
For up and till now you
Remain a fragment in my dreams.

Don’t say you love me…

 

P.S.

An irrational (maybe for some) poetic rant of a woman in a coffee shop.

    Oh the heartache of our human relationships, anger we vent, but fragile we remain.

        I’m posting an old poem of mine later, “Missing You”, but not anger of a broken heart, more about the love we once knew.

  3. When someone we love breaks our heart, the anger and vulnerability both surface. Emotions can really rip our innards apart. It’s a pain like no other. Such passion, Mich. I don’t think I’ve ever heard you swear before. Lol. You should eavesdrop more often!! 😀

    Sounds like the guy needs a good knuckle sandwich. If she was my girl, she’s be writing poems about what a sharp dresser I am and how I’m a really good kisser.

    Hello Michnavs,
    I had trouble with WordPress last night and my comments are not displaying here. They have been going to Spam apparently.
    I do hope this one makes its way to you…

  15. Well worth the eavesdropping. The woman’s pain comes through – I hope she’s found clarity regarding her next steps – out the door.

    Understandable rant actually. We all want the truth, we’d rather someone be straight forward. It hurts at first but in the end it leaves us with a much better taste than a former loved one who always lies instead of being truthful.
