And you.
You broke my heart and,
displeased with the results,
you scattered the pieces and
ground them under your uncaring heel.
Yet I loved you.

I remembered the sweet things
you poured in my virgin ears.
The quiet moments beneath the sunset
or riding through the summer mountains.
Just you and I.
And I loved you.

Though I cried a thousand
tears and begged you not to leave,
promising to write,
promising to return,
promising to love none but me.
You left me.

Each promise you made and
each word you spoke
were lies.

And beneath the loathing I
came to feel at your name,
beyond the lies you left behind,
passing by the broken promises.
In my heart of hearts
hidden from the world,
I loved you still.

Why did you never love me?  
Just getting the last of a bad situation out of my system.

Its good to get things out of one's system... I love writing poems, but most are way to personal to myself for me to want to write...
Too much anger and such...

Too many things hurt too many people...

Your poems quite emotional- the mentioning of how you remember....

Some people are just.... well.

still, keep writing poems, they are really good-reallyREALLY good, ok?

Whoa, thats rough. Dont worry, the future will be better.
I really like the style you used here, very well done. I always like emotional peices like this.
Panther-Nora Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2003
Yeah, it was pretty rough, but once I got it written, I realized that I didnt feel so bitter any more. I think it helps any situation to express it. I know that the future is bound to be better.
Ramuel Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2003
Yeah, writing definitely always helps to get everything out of your system. Always helped me, well mostly, but yeah.

Wow! Thanks. I'm surprised people like the ending, I mean, I liked it but I wasnt sure what other people would think. Thanks for commenting.

This is so sad and full of emotion. The question you ask at the end really finishes it off well too. Nice work!
