Should have known,
The only one, trying for years.
That giving all of myself
To someone who is empty
Will only render me,
R A Lee Jan 2016
I want to forgive
but should I forget?

I want to forget
but will I never forgive?

I ask myself
Am I too loyal? Am I not a ***** enough?

But to you, I ask why?
Your secrets are safe.

Our future depends on what you say next
I already know
I have known for some time now

Why did you lie?
It hurts you do not trust me to tell me your fantasies
I just wanted YOU to tell me

Why have you hurt me?
What happens next depends on you.
you say,
you are not a ******
you say,
you come in peace
but this does not put me at ease.
because you are a man
i am aware of your testosterone
lingering in your blood stream
like alcohol,
in a drunken girl.
while he feeds on her drunken body
like prey.

you say,
you are not a ******
you say,
you mean no harm
but i am a woman,
in a man's world  
and you are a man,
in a ******'s world
so i hear yours words
and approach with caution.
you are a man.
Made an ocean before a drop
Of water dried-up before it's mopped
A shoot before the backdrop
creative feeling before she gulped

Beauty before the beholder
or let say before he behold her
Grown before she could be older
Timid before, She is bolder

Loved, before realizing they are ****
Yet to get the love-in, but he has come
He's here, she will yet describe him as gun
Only shoots around, like he's as* god

Now, she wished what was dim was clear
Like courage coming before the fears
She hoped this affair could be fair
Like seeing the future before it appears

If only we can know Tomorrow's end from to Today's end
But Today's end is just a start
Well, will like to stay a start can just be the needed tip for the trip.

Let me support you , while you hang from the cliff edge .
                   Let me congratulate you on destroying
                                      every past thing said .
                      As if it meant nothing from the start .
                  Creating misery across life, like it was art .
                               Who knew you'd go that far .
                             But guess what , I'm still here .
                        How do you explain away the scars ?
                     Do your stories , only match the ones
                                 You deemed greater then us ?
                Do you give their life pain with the feelings of
                                            So why only me Love ?

No matter how many lies you said
You can't lie to your heart
For lying to your heart
Leads to pain and destruction

No matter how many people you care
You must never think of something in return
For when you look for something in return
You will gain betrayal and distrust
JR Rose Jan 2021
It begins with a whisper.
One thought,
one voice,
one blow upon the dam
to a restless river.


This dark duet
of doubt
of uncertainty;
two thoughts to feed
two voices to fetter
two fiends to fuel
an unruly fire,
bigger yet.


No, it crescendoes!
Voices rising,
like mephitic vapors—
I inhale.
I choke.
I scream.
But no one hears me.
No one hears what's inside my head.


Please, be quiet
lest I ruin me,
and all that I love;
draw a line in the sand,
sift out these voices of right
and wrong
of good
and bad
of truth
and lies
because these voices lie
oh yes, they do.
And if I know me—
every crevice
every crack
every word written in my heart
by my God, O my God, who made
every crevice
every crack
every word written in my heart—
how can they know me too?


You wicked voices!
Yes, I know what you do to
stir fear
until I have no choice
but to listen to the voices.


No more.
No more voices,
or restless rivers,
or unruly fires,
or mephitic vapors.


Blissful silence.
I can breathe
and close my eyes
to the black symphonies of

Yet, in the absence
in the void
a single note echoes
indiscernible in the buzz
but this is silence
and in the silence
things become louder
until I crave the noise again.
for your words
has left

for your lies
that only
me truths.

And holding
onto truths
that only
your lies,
leave me wondering
I was never
good enough.
