When you come home, I get a pain in my chest.
You come so many miles to try and work things out.
Just leave me alone, you make me want to shout.
I've been trying to put our relationship to rest.

You try to convince me, but you won't get far.
Your words mean nothing, you've already lost.
I've suffered enough and paid the cost.
I don't want you anymore, you've left a scar.

Now you're leaving here, but just for now.
So go back to Hawaii and live you're days,
knowing you've hurt me in so many ways.
This little show you've put on is done-take you're bow.

And now I know I deserve better than you.
Now I'm finally starting to believe it too.

The author's comments:
This poem was about a relationship I shared with a guy in high school. I am still in high school, but he graduated a few years before me, and became a U.S Marine. Whenever he was home on leave, he would contact me and stir up old feelings-feelings that were forgotten in the first place, because he just didn't treat me well. This poem is about how I felt when I came to the realization that he wasn't a good person for me and how I learned to let go of my feelings; and how I realized I deserved to be treated better.
