About the Poem

This poem was written after my boy and I went our separate ways. He didn't handle it well, and showed me a side of himself I hadn't seen before. He put me through a lot and these are unspoken words to him.

I hope that people understand that whatever they are going through, there is always someone that has been there, before them. We are never alone and even though sometimes life sucks, it always has highs and lows. It's like the stock market!

Desire

How could you have hurt me so, after the things we shared?

My desire motivated me to do the things I could for you.

Things I couldn't imagine myself doing for anyone else.

It deludes my mind, overwhelms my heart.

Your lies constantly enticing me to believe that I want you,
and you the same.

Desire affects me, afflicts me, drives me to distraction.

I am at its mercy when it comes to you.

These things my heart speaks to you in vain, for never have I met anyone
who could infect and intoxicate my heart the way you do.
