baby daddy

A Poem by Kristi

eh i think you could figure what its about lol


i dont know why i keep doin this

letting him twist every story

i dont know why i convince myself

it must be my fault somehow


i dont know why i cant change him

with everything that we've been through

my heart aches with every hit i take

but for some reason i need more


i dont remember leaving him

but he said i ran away

i dont remember abusing him

but his insults dont come from the air 


i dont remember not trying

but its seems that i failed somehow

if i didnt why would we be here

and him out running around


but i guess a whole family

was'nt what i was after

after all we're alone

and it must be my fault somehow

Ouch! This poem cuts right to the heart of the aftermath of a dysfunctional relationship, and demonstrates in a way that is probably painfully real for many people, how such a relationship can affect you, fully and completely, and in the long-term. This poem is painfully direct and quite affecting, very honest writing.

You've captured the stereotype of man very well here...making her think it's her fault. I don't think I've seen this addressed in a poem before and I'm not really sure why since it is very prevalent. A very emotional, powerful write, full of the confusion it needed to make it wonderful. Well done!
