Would you do it?
Cast down my remains to the underworld
Look into my waitful eyes
And lie.

 

Could you do it?
Defeat your lingering selfish pride
And at least just see my pouring tears
Turn in to cries.

 

A sorry excuse for all the pain you caused
Our love feeble and flawed
And you watched it burn
With me in it.
How could you do it?

 

After all the anger I suffered
All the lies I was told
I saw your true character
And your personality unfold
With my values far from it.
How could you do it?

 

So I dare you to run
I dare you to hide
From this war raging
Brewing from inside.

 

I'm not the flower
You once knew
Because of what you've done
A weed has grew.

 

I'm not the person
You once knew
Just like I
Never truly knew you.


The author's comments:

Women are strong human beings. In my poem, I portray the true essence of that trait as well as the soft, vulnerable side of us. Love really is a complicated thing to grasp. I hope you enjoy it.

Problem is not many are into poems that rhyme. It's just free verse that people like. I never realized that until now.

Lol, I cannot relate either. It was just something I wanted to write. I see exactly what you mean, though. I like to exaggerate things so that it brings a broader aspect to the actual simplicity of the poem. I'm learning, it's not my best, but I have a lot of time ahead of me. Anyway, I like to think of poetry as art. There's no right or wrong way to do it. ;)

I like the rhyme pattern, though I am not a sucker for poems. The message, though, I don't fully understand, but at the same time I understand. I feel as if the emotion of anger is exaggerated in this piece. But that is the point. That is what is being conveyed. I can't relate, but I definitely can feel what you want to say.
