Damaged and Nearly Broken

September 10, 2019

 

You hurt me today

 

You returned — into my life
Seduced — one another
Again I fell — in love

 

You hurt me today

 

Your passions at home — unfulfilling
To me you turned — wanting
Lustful needs — yearning

 

You hurt me today

 

Your wanton sexual desire — fulfilled
My love fueled passion — used
My soul — discarded

 

You hurt me today

 

There was another — more importantly cherished
I was the other — negligibly acknowledged
Insignificant and inconsequential

 

You hurt me today

 

There were no more fantastical moments
Not even a few seconds to share
You no longer had need

 

You hurt me today

 

You thought I felt — neglected
It was — scathing rejection
Cruel — abandonment

 

You hurt me today

 

You proclaimed — I am done
You flat out said — fond memories
You made it clear I am — no longer appealing

 

You hurt me today

 

Why?
 I don’t matter
The answer is that simple

You hurt me today

 

 

I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm.

For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds,

if not thousands, who do not. It is their stories I tell. 

 

“Who am I?”

 

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.


However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable.
