Not Enough

January 15, 2009
Is it not enough that you have already used me?
Is it not enough?
Is it not enough that you lied to me and left my heart bleeding on the floor,
Is it not enough?
Is it not enough that you forced me away from my friends so you could
have me to yourself,
Is it not enough?
Is it not enough that my heart has already been broken by you,
Is it not enough?

Yet when I find the courage to tell this to you
You do not care
But instead continue to go about your ways
I still treat you like everyone else
Yet you always single me out
Tel me I have no purpose
Knock me down
I stretch out my hands upward
But I find myself stuck

Had you not put me through enough that you must continue to criticize me,
Was it not enough?
Had you not found enough satisfaction in shoving me away,
Was it not enough?
Had you not found enough in breaking your promise?
Was it not enough?
Had you not found enough in causing me pain and tears
Was it not enough?

In my agony, I cry out
To no answer still
Utterly alone
The same way you left me
Again, I ask one question

Although I've never been in a relationship I realize this is accurate to my friends' feelings if their boyfriend/girlfriend dumped them or they got fed up enough with the crap that they dumped their "other half". I can also relate to the venting through poetry that's what most of my poems are even though most of them are quite depressing. But overall good job it's very impactful and I look forward to reading more of your writing. :)

Wow, this is amazing. I love it. and i can relate how poetry calms you, it does for me also. Thats the only reason i write is to get something out of my heart and on to paper, so i dont have to feel the pain anymore
