Fare thee well
Posted by: Lady of the Night (---.tys.bellsouth.net)
Date: June 10, 2004 11:01PM

And I hope you have a good life,
and I hope you treat the next one
better than me, because

you left me on my knees in a muddy, bloody puddle
where you'd shoved me down,
holding my head under the water,
my arms pinned behind my back,
defenseless.

I wanted an apology,
I wanted you to talk to me,
I wanted you to care.

I begged for you to hear me,
to support me, to keep your
empty promise of eternity,
but because you did not respect,
you were deaf to my pleas.

So goodbye, my darling,
and fare thee well.
"I'm through wit' you,"
as you told me over and over again.

The rollercoaster came to a screeching halt,
leaving me battered and broken,
grasping for three final threads with which
to braid a rope of salvation (love, respect and dignity),
all of which you denied,
leaving me drowning

in my misery, in my pain,
in my anger and in the tears that

I'll
cry
again
tonight.



Lady of the Night

I never conquered, rarely came, sixteen just held such better days.

Ouch, hope you don't run into this guy again. Of course, he did bring something out in you, so I guess it couldn't have been all bad!

Bring something out? Sure! Positive? Debatable.

I'm having a very difficult time letting go of a couple of things in my life, and this is one of them. I was in an unhealthy relationship for a month, where what I wanted clouded what was. I have to see him twice a week, if not more, and it still hurts that he won't speak to me. Not that I want him back, by any means, I hate what he did, I hate what happened, I hate the way he treated me. But I also hate that I fell for it, but MOSTLY, I hate that I can't let it go. So this piece is about me saying goodbye on the outside, toughin' it out, when really... I just can't, and I still cry.

This poem brings me to tears, having had similar experiences in the past. I know it's very difficult to let go of those whom you have felt so strongly about. It hurts and hurts, and hurts.

But the remedy is time.

Trust me on that one, time does heal these wounds. Stay strong!
