Some women have souls that beg to move to travel, to love, to be free. These women have gypsy soules

How could you say it,
so void of emotion,
that you did not love me anymore?
How could you say
I do not know of love?
I waited when you abandoned me,
I held you up as you tore me down
I kissed your tears away as you,
you tore them from my eyes
in streams of misery.
You lied to me,
you cheated,
You broke every promise
but still I stayed with you.
I loved you through it all
and never yelled,
never screamed or cried
and I could punch a wall
and cry for God
Cry for him to take away the pain
and you say I do not know love.
You tell me
you no longer see a future
after letting me believe
you had transformed
After painting pretty pictures
in my mind.
You've caused so many tears
You've created pain so horrible
I only wish to curl up and die
you who've made my fears come true
you say I do not know love?
I who went through your lies
and still ought the need
to call you back to me
I do not know love?
I, who had to wrench myself away
when you left for the final time,
I do not know love?

I wrote this piece a year ago when my first love and I broke it off for the last time.
