    You say that your ready to give me
    The title of Wifey and i don't believe you
    Because not once in these 4 years
    Has there been a time when you haven't
    Looked, lusted, or cheated
    You've never been there for me in the
    Times that i've really needed you the most
    Like when i was fighting for pro-abortion
    Because you didn't want a seed
    Not because you didn't have enough money
    To support, clothe, or feed him or her
    Whatever they might've been
    You just didn't feel the need to be a daddy then
    But now, all of a sudden you think your fit
    To be a husband and be successful with
    No more disappointment?
    God knows i love you but i always question
    Myself on why in the hell did i always have
    To live in the moment?
    All my questions failed on why i constantly let
    You take advantage because now i am the
    One suffering major damage that can't be
    Undone, you may not believe this...
    But i was once a girl that was good
    But once innocence is lost souls are dimmed forever
    You always promised that you would be better
    But your lying again because i can't suffer and settle
    For whatever, because that's like the weather it's
    Subject to change at any time, and that's all i
    Ever wanted from you- your time and some honesty
    But this is nothing but a circle so
    The same ol' things keep reoccuring constantly
    And all i can say is, I'm ready for a change

    Four years is a long time to carry such a load. Sounds wise to be cautious. Emotive vibe poet. Flow on.

    I see you're doing what a poet should
    "Writing and allowing the words to heal you"
    Touching poem
