for what you've done

for what you've done

A Poem by mercy party
"

#11

"

The fire has burned
don't call for me. 
when you said that it was nothing
i was finally at ease
i've been accepting apologies you never gave
i cant help you when there's nothing left to save

i hit the road to where 
that i cant share
i suppose it's just because i didn't see it as a blessing 
as you brushed me off 
like a love long lost.

its not you its me
well obviously
you cant imagine life without me, 
well its your lucky day 
it looks like you wont have to,
i have been junked and put away
as you brushed me off
like a love long lost

and when that moment came
i sure hope you found a way
to find forgiveness-
in your heart 
for what you've done

and all that has been lost for lust
all the sorrys
and the double sorrys 
there is a cost
for what you've done

My first thought was that I finally found one I hadn't reviewed. My second thought was, this poor person has handed over his heart to someone who is either very selfish or has not reached the emotional maturity required for a commitment. It's difficult to be on the receiving end of that...

Being involved with someone that displays inconsistency
well makes one think
there is more than what one sees .... but that's love to care and want someone beyond it all
through all that mess you still love

or you dont

Well done :)

Absolutely diggin on this! Some people just don't have what it takes to receive, they're emotionally incapable almost:

'i've been accepting apologies you never gave
i cant help you when there's nothing left to save' really dope lines MP. Good stuff! R xo

A bitter love story. Like you've been thrown away like garbage when you have outlived your usefulness to her. I feel as though this is a sort of "Swan Song" to someone you loved but perhaps didn't truly love you back despite how much you gave her emotionally, maybe your heart?

A great poem, MP!
