A Perfect Love Ruined: Poem by Stephanie Lahart
I gave you way too much credit
Trusted you 100%
Opened up my wounded heart to you
Allowed you to see the real me
My strengths, weaknesses, and flaws.
I saw the best
When everybody else had nothing good to say about you
I stood proudly by your side
Built you up
And loved you unconditionally
In spite of everything that was being said.
I believed every word that you spoke
Every plan that you made for us
Every promise that you guaranteed
And every dream that we’d fulfill together
Oh yes! I believed.
You and I were perfect for one another
Too good to be true
In many people’s eyes
We had a love that was extremely rare
Genuine and solid as a rock.
We accomplished great things together
Built our family from scratch
To having it all
Through our hard work
And dedication to us.
Ample money in the bank
Our life was envied by many.
then you ruined it all!
You made a choice to cheat.
Compromise our family.
My complete trust in you.
I’ve tried over and over to forgive you
But I always fall short
Can’t seem to get past all of your deceitfulness
Your lies. Your lies. Your fucking lies!
I ‘m so hurt!
I’m so damn angry with you!
I have no understanding!
I want to trust you again, but I just can’t.
lies have made me numb to love. I’ll never trust again.
My heart is freezing cold.
I won’t allow it to thaw out.
Never again will I open up my heart.
My heart isn’t willing,
And my mind isn’t either.
you my all just to get fucked in the end.
Love is a gamble. You just never know.
