What It Was

The day we met was just perfect,

You were the one for me,

Your smile captured my heart,

But all you showed was cruelty.

You said what it was " it was",

And that we should never think,

That it would be this way forever,

Now my heart wants to sink.

You remarried your ex-wife,

Then send me things in the mail,

What is it that you are thinking,

To shock me you never fail.

I wish that i had the answers,

To things that i may never know,

Why did you treat me like you did,

you know not like a friend but foe.

So please stop with all the words,

And all the other things you send,

You should be making a life with her now,

Things with us will never mend.

Sometimes the "end" is much better than the middle. Fresh air is a good thing for the soul...

As always, your ideas that bounce around in your head, never cease to amaze me. You have a very special gift. Your subject matter is so real, yet, so artisitc at the same time. If this is based on reall life, then the guy is definitely a real jerk.I hope he is no longer in your life. Keep on writing. Amy
