You let me down
You promised love
Not pain and abandonment
It wasn't a soft let
It was giant and unmistakable
It was you in my face...again
To the point of me feeling
the spray of your spit

It's nothing new
It's the same ol' same ol'
Years and years of your let downs
Time and time again you
begging me to not let go
No..It's nothing new
Not for me, not for your girls

When I hit the floor the other day
 I was afraid and yet so angry
My mind just screamed, no more
No more..
Don't touch me again
I'm through with your anger
I'm done making excuses

You promised to not betray me
Yet all you have done is betray
After years of your abuse and neglect
I realize that your love is bad
I'm lower than dirt right now
Smashed under your boot like a bug
My power will come back one day
My strength will return

Through with you I will be
Kicked to the curb
Your betraying self gone from me
Your bad love ripped from my being
My strength will return
You just wait and see
Through with you I will be

You are already strong! Couldn't have written this, were
it not so. I am assuming this is autobiographical. . .right?
Pain feels so real. Sense of betrayal! To me, the poem
applies well to other types of relationships. Parental
betrayal is as devastating, or more. When a close friend
. . .lets not go there. This is about y o u. The poem is
very affecting. . .obviously. Here's to true and lasting
love, 'Pea' <3
