A poem I wrote while looking back on the months of pain and discomfort that have led me to this miserable state, even if it was only over a girl.

I hope you know

I'm mutilated from love's bow

Every moment we conflicted

Only ever inflicted

Pain and agony within me

Which no one could see.


But now I can see crystal clear

I look back on it like a seer

Wishing that back then I knew

That my love for you only grew

And yours began to fall apart

Taking us back to the start.


Afterwards it was like we never met

As if the scene of our love was never set

But now it's present day

Where all the things you used to say

Seem to weigh me down

Forcing an unwelcome frown.


That's the reason for my malfunction

My inner deconstruction

That's the reason for my sorrow

Everyday I've wished it gone by tomorrow

Maybe soon my wish will come true

Allowing my love to once again brew

But this time for someone new.

I swear every time I read your poetry, I sit here thinking, "That's exactly how I feel!!!" This poem has emotions attached that express exactly how I feel about Frankie (I wrote about him in my bio/summary if you want to know who he is...). It's uncanny.
