The Men From My Past

The Men From My Past

A Poem by ApDunamis



The men from my past who didn’t last

Till the end of time

They told me sweet lies that wouldn't suffice

That broke my heart in to pieces like a wooden knife

Who had sworn in their love as golden.

As if they were chosen

Thinking their love I’d be withholding, on too

But bestowed upon them is a new woman

My journey ahead

Built like a terrace

Skin golden at its fairest

They wish they could breathe the air that I’m sparing

Cheering me on from the sidelines

But I'm smart enough to know my life line, refusing to let neither waste my time

And watch my own behind because I know for damn sure they weren’t worth a dime or a penny more than my muse


Messing up my mood; how rude.

The men from my past who didn’t last

Because they never knew what they truly had, until they do.

I guess we all know now who played the fool, to be cool.

The men from my past who didn’t last

Who's love they’ll never get a chance to have

Good for you ApDunamis. Stand your ground and let none take advantage and pull you under. However, keep us in your prayers, for we men instinctually know that there is nothing more powerful than a good woman to recorrect our stupid behaviors. Nice work Ap. Namyh
