Memoirs of a Bitch

Poetry By: Tatia Shurgaia

A poem about letting go of an on and off love.

Sometimes I think about it, about us,

How we talked all night, and shared such strong opinions at times.

There's so many things that remind me of you and I don't know how to get rid of them.

For the past few weeks I've been a mess,

Slowly trying to forget you, and it was going so great until you ruined it for me and caused me this much stress.

Don't you understand?

How many years is it going to take for you to comprehend?

Every time something goes wrong, we stop talking, then we click again.

Never letting each other move on, or forget.

So you called me to tell me you found someone new,

That you pushed her away,

Now that I'm gone, and you have her back, you're a happy two.

I thought you always wished me well,

But now I know all you ever wanted was to show me hell.

I was never the greatest love to choose,

But at least I stayed honest until we broke loose.

Sometimes you can't judge what you can't understand,

I never told you everything,

But I see who I've turned you into.

I should receive a trophy for creating the best monster out there.

I hope she treasures you the same way you treasured me,

Now I just hope you don't repeat after me.

Don't destroy your love just because I destroyed your heart.

Don't make her cry just because you didn't get what you want.

Our love was never meant to last,

So let's keep our love locked in the past.

Don't worry, I always find my way.

I'll take those deep breaths and just wait for the pain to die away.
