callousness

 

Copyright ©2017 Stephanie R Schubert

 

I feel betrayed,

abandoned.

Why you pursue everything,

with everyone else but me.

I am the only one,

to whom you say no.

What I would give, for yes,

a real kiss,

to feel the love,

we once we shared;

for you to come home,

ravenous for me, my heart, our love.

But that is all in the past.

All I feel from you now,

is your callousness.

I keep coming up short.

I keep finishing last.

I guess what we shared,

really is, finally part of the past.

I am last on your list,

of priority,

my love has become,

the minority.

Unless of course,

it’s you, who needs love,

support;

affection.

I see no future,

In this state that I am in.

It doesn’t matter what.....

I do,

I can never win.

So yesterday,

I threw away everything,

and soon I will be ready,

to start all over again.

    Bravo! I just so happen to have done this a while ago. Someone who doesn't appreciate you for who you are or the love that you provide is better not being with you. Their loss, though. Good stuff, keep it up!

    your pain really comes through in this write! I'm glad you have made a good decision. life is short. it isn't worth the time to live in pain, when you have the power to change it.

    Good write with a positive end. Start all over again in the knowledge that all will be well.
