For Him

For Him

A Poem by Cassiopia Summers

A girl struggles with how to tell him it just cannot be any longer...















The crashing in her mind

leaves her confused and unsure.

Wondering how she can tell him,

end his heartache and hurt.

She's not good for him,

she knows it.

Pain encircles his eyes,

each exasperated sigh, painful.

Ending this connection will hurt him,

but continuing will only hurt more.


He yearns for the return of love,

yet she cannot give him what he needs.

She's pulling away, he knows it,

leaving him broken and alone.

Her heart is aching, knowing

he's in pain, hurting because of her.

He's too devoted,

she's afraid of commitment.

She's on the defensive,

he's equipped for the fall.


She's undeserving of such emotion,

he needs acceptance of so much devotion.

Open arms, ready for love to fall,

right inside is what he deserves.

Full of heartache she'll end it today,

knowing to well she cannot delay.

His face will contort, she'll shed tears,

causing him pain was never what she wanted.

Such strong devotion and trust, she doesn't have,

leaves her knowing she's not good for him.

I know all to well that situation. You said it better than any one i know. You write from your heart and truest of emotion. It is something that can be the hardest. I loved this one.

wow....I so understands is as if a painful dagger pierces each on from a duel edged sword...for she can't accept love and he can't accept not being loved..painfully aware of these emotions and u placed the beautifully.

Love it, well written. It's the hardest situation when you care about someone but not in that way or just know it won't work out even if you like them like that. Nicely done.

We can not truly love another until we loves ourselves... sounds like a person in need of self discovery before being part of a duo... don't know where you need oto edit it... I like it as is.

First off, painful though the poem is, it`s well written. The desperation on your end facing up to a crappy reality facing off with the calm, blind acceptance of the guy`s love for you, was an intense conflict. I think you ought to fix the "ungood" bit though to "not good" as it`s proper Enlgish. Your choice though. Great poem.

Lets get to know each other. :) To start, I think music reveals to us the person within, so here are some of my favorite songs because of their lyrics. Sixx A.M. - Skin Paramore - The Only Ex.. more..
