About my ex who I was with for months, then he said he never loved me.

The love of my life 
Ended up as my knife 

That I held across my wrists 

Waiting for that last kiss 

Instead I got crimson 

You will not be forgiven 

You were the knife 

That ended my life

I know... I'm sorry you had to go through it all.

I was a long time ago, but this piece brought me right back to my own similar feelings. I will tell you what I told myself, "You grow through what you go through" it really helped (along with other psychological exercises to alter my cognition). It will never completely go away, but it can be managed. Writing about it always helps. Please keep it up!

Hello again Suzonne, I hope that you are okay and keeping in as best spirits as you possibly can? I came across this piece and thought that I'd stop by and check it out. The thing that drew me to the piece, was the hard-hitting title that you used. 'EndedMyLife' is very powerful and when I saw it, there was a real sense of sadness and sorrow just in then three words. The start of your poem really conveyed a real sense of hurt and the idea that, this person who you thought loved you, simply turned his back on you and broke your heart. I can sense the anger that you must feel, which is evident in the part where you wrote 'You will not be forgiven.' I cannot say that I understand the feelings and emotions that you've been made to feel as a result of this, but I can only begin to imagine that it isn't very nice at all, especially when you think that the other person loves you and you love them with all your being. The way in which you end the poem 'You were the knife that ended my life,' simply helped to establish the fact that this person essentially killed you inside and that is something that I don't think can ever be forgiven or forgotten. My empathy is with you as always Suzonne. I know that I've mentioned this before and my apologies for repeating myself, but you should never have to be put through that again. No-one should ever get the opportunity to treat you in such a way again. I hope that in the future you will find someone Suzonne, who will love you for who you are, who will treat you fairly and with kindness and most importantly, who won't have intentions of breaking your heart... If it meant to be Suzonne, then the time will come. Just try to keep your head held as high as you can and never change the beautiful person who you are. Take great care Suzonne and all the very best to you.

Oh My God. This poem is amazing. I can relate so much. I have a lot of self-harm poems too. I love how this was written. Keep up the good work and I'd love to read more of your poems.
