New addition to my creative corner!



Those harsh words couldn’t have come from your gentle lips

We seem to bicker more than we kiss

Is there anything more shattering you could say

I give into it all as you walk away


You claim things have changed between you and me

Love is not a factor; and you ask “Can’t you see?”

My heart sinks deep and my ears won’t believe

When you answer my questions with “You should leave.”


I feel like a child scolded for being set in my ways

You stare down on me with your grown up gaze

I cant tell if it’s in anger that you push me away

Or if in fact you love me, and wish I would stay


Then you calmly utter words that you certainly know

Will deepen my hurt and force me to go

You say such love could never be true

As I give up everything to be with you


When my anger erupts you are mildly aware

That your words cut deep and my heart is bare

You lean over to me, sudden gentleness in your eyes

And say your sorry, but our love was all lies


I try to understand; I beg not to weap

My fear comes to surface; my trust goes in deep

Now left to question if I will believe it is true

And pray hate can replace my feelings for you
