Your tongue was like a razor 
as I sliced into my skin 
I looked into your eyes 
and thought of  you as kin. 

You left me bruised and broken
my heart did not repair 
life was suppose to be fruitful
not full of that despair. 

I took a step behind you
because you were too protect 
but little did I know 
that I was just your pet. 

You told me that you loved me 
You told me that you cared
but when I needed you most 
You were never there. 

That's all fine and dandy 
we eventually broke it off
I should have known before a year
you weren't the cream of the crop

Anyways...many years have past now 
and this I can't believe 
an adorable young man
whom wears his heart upon his sleeve
has told me in such few words, 
'I hope you never leave' 

This is an amazing opportunity
and I know I haven't missed it
cause when holds me near
he also gives me kisses.

He realizes I have bad days
one's he can't dismiss
but still he holds me close, 
or tells me I am missed. 

I wish to say, "I love you" 
but it hasn't quite come out
it's only been a day or 12 
and this is hard to believe
because when he holds me in his arms
It feels like  an eternity. 

My scars have long been healed. 
Those things since have faded
but when he looks into my eyes 
I think he knows they're shaded. 

He tags me in the couple posts 
about cuddling and being  near 
I hope he loves me truly
because in my heart 
I hold him dear.

    Adrianna, this is such a nice poem about a love gone wrong and a new love coming into bloom.
    If you feel the way you seem to feel in the poem, TELL HIM YOU LOVE HIM!
