my trust in you
fell faster
than leaves off a tree
you hypocrite
you *******
I cannot believe you
you've done it again
you've taken my trust
and gave it a spin
and now its broken
because of you
telling me this
but then doing that
when will this cycle end?
i just wish I could depend on you
the way your child
should be able to
I loved you...

I loved you
And you hurt me

I trusted you
and you lied

You fixed me
just to break me

And now
I’m broken inside

I loved you

I loved you

I love you

I learned all I needed about women when I was twelve,
When my own mother left me to fend for myself.

See I was a scrawny annoyance, he was a 300 lb. catch,
And she simply refused to referee such an uneven match.

So she turned her back on me, left me for dead,
And he used me like a punching bag (just not in the head).

I guess she could deny it, if there were no bruises to see,
****, she barely reacted when he almost killed me.

He was jobless and living with us, doing artwork for some bar,
I laughed at his work and the look on his face said I'd gone too far.

He shot up like a flash, I'd never seen a 7-foot redneck move so fast!
He chased me down, grabbed my throat, and said I'd breathed my last.

He lifted me off the floor, and said this life was not to be treasured,
Then punched me in the stomach; Once, Twice, and Thrice for good measure!

His contempt only flourished in sight of the cross at my neck,
So he tore it off and spit on it, he wasn't scared of goin' to heck.

When I was nearly unconscious he finally left me fall,
He kicked me, asked where my God was, and left me gasping in the hall.

When he'd passed out drunk I told my mom what he'd done,
She patted my knee, "Do you expect me to believe that, son?"

"It's such a hard life, being a single mom, I hope you understand.
That's why I'll never forgive you, if you drive away this man."

So yeah, you'll never have trouble convincing me men are crap,
But likewise, I know women are no better, and that is a fact.

I need a little more time
To give you little more time
To let you reside by my stars.
Yu broke the star's and I need time

To trust someone
is something frail
you give others.

They break it with ease,
You're left alone to fix.

When the trust is broken,
And the words are just spoken:
You never give your ears on them;
It never gains the grip which's already loosen.


The words become the unknown,
It never reaches your heart again:
The thing no one can understand;
The words are just not a word-


It belongs to the epic story,
Which has the connection in past glory!
But people just smashed the bygone memory; Making their present to forget the trust's worry.



Composed by Urooba Fatima.
This poem comes off the suffering of broken trust.

She doesn't keep to herself
She has trusted alot of people in the past
And so many of them switched up
So stop knocking
Her walls are up
All her doors are locked
She's not letting anyone in

Love,
A word we carelessly throw around,
Casually to people we like and some we don't
An emotion so rare these days.

In a world so corrupt,
Families fueled by greed,
Betrayal fueled by lust,
Frenemies frolicking with lovers

We have accepted our fate,
We trust too little,
Love less,
Fake more.

So forgive me if I do not say the words back,
I am a child of this world,
I've learnt all too well,
My love is but nothing to be treasured.

Or perhaps I too have been corrupted
I know not what love is
So remind me
Of my innocence once lost.

you told me you loved me
you told me "you are mine"
you told me you'd love me forever
you told me "you belong to me"
you told me I was your alpha & your omega
you told me "you are why I was born a man, to love you"
you told me you were going to marry me
you told me "I can never love another now"
you told me you'd never let me leave you
you told me "I'll put you in a box in the ground, before I'll let you go"
you told me you'd never hurt me
you told me "I'm going to **** you"
you told me you loved me.

love is not ownership
love is not obsession
love is not violence
love is not suppression
love is not breaking bones
love is not silence
love is not feeling alone

you saw me like you see
one of your treasured
first editions
a thing to show off
to brag about
to your mates
a thing to pick up
and put down
to keep locked up
to covet
a thing you own.

I loved you
when you were
my loving lost boy of the morning
I loved you
when at loves first bloom
you were sweet
passionate
gentle
kind
I loved you
when you made me feel safe
I loved you
before the strong arms
that held me close
broke my bones
and broke my heart
broke my faith
and tore it all apart.

Broken trust,
is that how it starts,
when falling apart?

Now, we stand at the crossroads,
jealousy rumbles like the cold, black wind.
Who was the first to sin?

My pain, always your pleasure,
when things were rough,
I could never suffer enough.

The bitter tragedy,
your struggle with guilt.
My wall, you built.
