Believe It Or Not Believe It Or Not
This is my first attempt at slam poetry, and I'm excited to film a performance of this piece over the coming day.
Even though everytime... "Goodbye!"

Even though everytime... "Goodbye!"

A Poem by Eddie Phillips



You said you loved me.
It was just another lie.
You promised never to leave.
Today you gleefully said, "Goodbye."
I always believed you.
I trusted you despite losing my pride.
I gave all of the "me" that I wanted to keep inside.
Today you left me with nothing but the remnants of a lie.

You took all I had and laughed without care.
You raped me of my purpose by swearing you'd be there.
I ignorantly trusted you.  I believed despite my fears.
Even though everytime...
You left me alone with abandoned tears.
Betrayed, I think back I hear all your lies.
Painfully I realize that every time you fed on me:
You always knew you would gleefully say, "Goodbye."

I know how it feels when you care so much and they hurt you again and again and again.This also reminds me of a song,''Breakeven''.
Anyhow, Thank You for sharing :)!
