Favorite Quote:
-Speak what you think now in words as hard as cannonballs and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict everything you said today.


It's hard to stand here
holding my breath
for one last chance.
I can't here the words
that poison my mouth,
that poison your tongue.

I can't bare the lies
you tell me every time.
You say you are all alone.
When I heard her on your phone.
You think I don't know.
But I am already broken from head-to-toe.

I've known since the start.
My heart fell apart.
I thought you would get wise.
But it was no surprise.
That you kept this secret.
you little secret.

It's over I said to him.
He didn't even try to deny it.
I didn't cry.
I didn't whin.
I walked out the door.
I'm not going back to him
no more.

This is an interesting poem. I like the rhythm to it.
