You Left Me


April is National Poetry Month. So I’m kicking it off with a very personal poem that I wrote about recent events that have pretty much derailed my life. At least until I can get myself back on track.

Expect many more personal, angsty, and emotional poems from me this month.

You Left Me

National Poetry Month
You left me…
Alone,
Without a home,
Without a hope,
And on my own.
You took my heart,
From the start,
Then threw it out,
When you were done.
I was one of many,
Other men there were plenty,
But I invested the most,
Now I feel like a ghost.
We have a son,
Our only one.
Now his family is torn,
For your need of live porn.
You cheated me…
Out of our marriage,
Out of our house,
Out of my mind.
You left me…
Lost,
Confused,
Misplaced,
Abused.
In shattered pieces,
Of the man I was.
You wasted…
My time,
My money,
My love.
I was willing to,
Overlook your flaws,
But you won’t release my balls.
One day your icy heart will thaw,
But it will be too late.
We could have been great.
We were perfect mates.
But that will never be enough.
Not for you.
One day I’ll be gone,
And you’ll wonder all along,
What went wrong?
Listen for once,
And you will see.
You left me…
In mind,
In body,
In spirit.
Tattered and alone,
So you could fetch another bone,
Like a bitch.
