Have I ever been important?

by Em (marmite)   Oct 16, 2019


As we dine together
you stare in her direction
how could you when
you utter phrases like
"you're my world"
"I only have eyes for you"
"I love you"

those words mean nothing now,
just a kick in the gut.

Again, I've no
-self respect
-self confidence
or trust.

    Hello, my dear
    this kicks me in my gut. I wan to slap the man who could do this to you.

    Your layout of 'his' kicks' and your pain makes for a powerful poem. So sad! xx

    I hear ya! Believe me (if not, my poems, good & rubbish prove it!), I know exactly what you're feeling, but every cloud has a silver lining, & yours is your ability to write it down, & share it with us. A problem shared, & all that jazz ;-)
    Please do know that you will turn a corner, one day, & realise that this pain gave you strength to be a stronger person. & when you are, you will look on this pain as a gift. At least, that's what I try to do, & so far, I'm on an upbeat cycle. Of course, each one so far has gone downhill, but we cannot give up hope, & this time, I'm going to be enjoying every good moment I can get. You will too, I just know it.
    Much love, Catherine x

    You are an amazing woman with a big heart you don't need a man like this in your life to make you feel bad. There is a soul mate out there who will love and cherish you and make you happy. Unfortunately you do have to go through the motion of kissing a few frogs and sometimes nasty little toads till you find your Prince. Don't give up on love because of this mucus filled slimy toad who's not worthy of standing in your shadow.
    Warm hugs Milly x
