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 thought...so that was good! lol
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 :)))
Well not many people has patience like he has...trust me, i m going thro the same trouble....so i must confess...i could relate to every single word..the only thing is that...with me the ending is not good at all.
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 Gem.....lol
