    sometimes life can rip
    your heart out
    but you manage to go on
    i lament because i have sung this song
    and for a moment...i find it hard to go on
    but only...for a moment
    at times
    when i think of the wasted lines
    the wasted words
    my wasted mind
    aching to hear you say one line
    a whispered i love you in my ear
    but instead you made it perfectly clear
    that sex was all that you desired from me
    does this even count as love poetry?
    moving foward is all that i see
    and for the most part i am fine
    but i had to write at least one line
    that reflects the anger that i feel
    because that anger's mine and it's real
    but i take a deep breath
    relax...shake it off....
    i think i'll go pumpkin picking now
