    Ever feel like you have just been broken down, broken into pieces and just have nothing left. Gave your all to a man just to have him beat you down. I remember the times when you didnt have nothing, I gave you what you have made you what you are and in return I get nothing. The disrespect I can no longer take the way you break my heart not knowing everythings at stake. I bore you two wonderful children who you take for granted, thats a big mistake. I love you unconditionally but you put conditions on your love for me, why cant you just love me back? Bitter, that I am. I gave you all I can, the more I give the more you take but you cant seem to give in return. The lies, the hurt, the woman, and the jobs. My dear brother if your gonna cheat, dont go slumming then at least I wouldnt feel so bad and bothered. If your gonna loose what you got at home, make sure she is worth all the trouble that it will cause. Am I bitter, yes I am. Why you ask? I took a brother with no home, little education, and who basically lived like a bum and tried to show him that there is more to life than the life he was living. Took him on vacations helped him get a car and yet this man left me scarred. Am I bitter of course am I, tell me with all this going on who wouldnt be? You had your sideline hoe knocking at my door, then you had the nerve to lie about being with her. I was pregnant with your child and she wanted to acost me about your lowdown no good ***. Am I bitter, sure why not, who deserves to be treated like this!

    Yes, that sounded like a bit much.

    'Sounds like your name represents what this describes.

    Bitter first then angry next
    no matter what you say or do
    you'll stay perplexed
    you pulled the page
    from my own diary
    almost a year
    and now the rage fiery


    I absoltuely understand what you are going through, cry, scream, yell, but make sure at the end of the day the bitterness does not overwhelm you. Your kids need you, cuz if your story plays out like mine, he won't be there (blessing and curse). Head up, the pain will cease, some days.

    I'm bitter also, but learn to tuck my feeling inside
    They enjoyed the ride
    I was giving
    Living
    To make them happy while I lived
    Bitter........
    Cuz I feel the pain in your pen, and I hope that you will gain the strength to move past, and just
    Let Go! Love you! Congratulations on your first piece as well!

    I've walked that same path once before
    And It made me want to love no more
    For all that was inside of me I poured
    Into the vessel that I adored
    Only for him to consume his fill
    And fall for another's weak appeal
    My world seemed to spin out of control
    But that is was until true love grabbed hold
    And now I look back with the utmost gratitude
    For his depature pushed me to this new altitude
    Don't allow his actions to make you bitter
    But allow them to make you just that much better

    Congrats on your first post, I enjoyed the stormy flow.

    Hello and Welcome Stormy...

    A lesson I learned in life… when we hold on to hurt and anger from those who have done us wrong, we become their accomplice, robbing ourselves of joy. Its difficult to let go, but writing is an awesome tool to release pain and bitterness. And what I like most about it… you can go back and read your progress. Your emotions are very much felt through your words. Keep writing it helps healing and thanks for sharing with us.
