    We've come this far despite everything
    I love you Marcus and that will never change
    The fights, the words, they all just prove...
    Nothing can break the vows we exchanged

    I loved this last stanza. thought it was great and so full of hope. I really enjoyed the poem. Brought a smile to my face. always.

    Good job Gem. I guess the only line I didn't like was the last one in the first stanza. It sounded out of place, and well, kinda corny. Sorry....But the rest was well done. Not as dark as I that was good! lol

    I love this! But I think the poem was dark but the 2 last stanzas sound more like a love poem than a dark poem! Great poem either way though!

    Sometimes we do say stupid things in the heat of the moment, whats makes it love is when we are able to realise the error of our way and still be together, its a rocky path but its worth every second ;) loved the poem :)))

    That was excellent. I have been searching for poems that resemble my relationship with my girlfriend. This is one that does. Although I wish it did not. Anyways nice work and keep it up.

    I'm first to admit, I can be cruel with my tongue
    What I say can knock your heart askew
    I take my pain and rage out on someone I love
    It's true; I hurt myself by hurting you

    Isn't that so true Gemma, after a fight when we sit down and truly think about it we come to realize we have not only hurt the one we love but we have hurt ourselves also. That deep lump in our throat that wells up after we've said those cruel words we never meant, and it grows bigger because we know it is to late to take them back.

    I guess in a way I just still can't believe
    That you would love someone as messed up as me
    You know about my past and everything that went on
    Yet you picked me up and brushed off the debris
    Sounds to me though that you and Markus have many years of happiness before you.
    Merry Christmas to you both!

    Don't forget to carry around that little secret stash of misletoe in your pocket

    Take care deary!

    Brilliant poem!!
    Explains exactly how you and many others feel in relationships, everyone says things they regret in the heat of the moment, its nice to know you make up afterwards =D

    Thanks for the vote and comment xx
