    The smile that once dance in my eyes
    Have turned upside down
    So many years of being with you
    Have given me nothing but the blues
    And you were my Ebony King
    The one who once made my heart sing
    Three years we lived in the nest of love
    Not a ring not nothing just us
    A child I bear witness our love

    You ask me to be you life
    To have and to hold as your wife
    But you had played me for a fool
    The I do came with rules.
    But what hurt more
    What hurts more
    As the tears roll
    What hurts more
    To find out I was NOTHING
    but a challenge
    A game I heard some men plays
    And you have distorted my life

    You may have won that bet
    But you have lost so much more

    And so I cry alone
    Away from everyone
    At first I was wearing a Mask
    Now I have become the Mask
    In disguise I cry
    I cry
    I cry

    Word Sista
    This is deeply felt
    Alot of Brothers play these types of games
    But Sista in general have to be strong and overcome
    Much Love Poet

    Thank you everyone for taking the time to read and reply to my poem...A good friend told me that if I can't really speak on it then release it in a flow, and not hold it in...and I won't cry alone anymore

    Many have been here, I know I have. And a well posed release it was, I felt every word. Keep releasing poet, and if I haven't welcomed you already, welcome to Destee.

    I really felt your pain in your words. I hate that you or anyone to have to go through that type of pain. I was told to do the same as you on the typing it out. Putting it out there in words you can feel.

    Good poem poet...

    Peace
