I thought i would miss you more...
Now that your gone.
But i dont.
Because i know you'll be back.
Begging me 2 take you back.

I used to love you more than life itself.
Forgive all the hurt,
and all the mistakes.
time and time again

I used to think that you hurt me because u loved me.
now i see that was just a lie you told me so i wouldn't leave.
Loving someone doesnt mean you hurt them.
Loving someone means you try to protect them.
Keep them safe, happy, secure.
Never causing them pain.

But thats exactly what you didnt do.
Instead you hurt me.
Made me cry night after night.
I cried more than a river for you.
But im done crying over you now.

Now, its time for me to move on.
forget all the times you hurt me.
All the lies you told me.
And all the pain you caused.
The touch i used to love that now causes me pain.

Im just trying to get you out of my mind
because I Cant take it anymore.
All these painful memories of you and me.
and how we used to be

Good for you! Nothing is ever easy to overcome, get past, or what have you. But... if you remember to always love yourself, you'll always have enough love left over to share with someone else who really deserves it! Stay strong, live long and prosper! Good write.

I can feel your pain and feel with you. This poem of yours bought back memories that you just wrote about here. And it also bought the 80's song "All Cried Out" by Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam to mind.
