    This is a poem about my past relationship and how I am dealing with it


    He drove her insane and felt no remorse for his action
    He looked at her in tears and gloated his satisfaction
    And now he wants to make things right but theres no coming back
    I guess thats what happens when you do things f***** up like that
    He treated her unkindly but still she loved him unconditionally
    I guess it was the last straw because no more could she take it mentally
    My mother is strong true but her heart is that of a babies
    No matter what happened her mind is still filled with what ifs and maybes

    And now I look at us my mother and father right in the flesh
    But I guess I can only do what I can and what I know best
    Act as if its fine but still want you to come around
    Then I want you to go away but when you turn your back I frown
    I roll my eyes.. curse and pretend that I hate you
    But we still laugh and smile just.. like they do
    I have my what ifs and my maybes.. possiblys.. okays
    But How can anyone take this...let me count the ways
    I love you unconditionally and thats what makes getting over you harder
    But I cant fix the way I take things..after all I am my mothers daughter
