Breaking Away

A Poem by Phantom.Bite
"

emotional poem

"
Do you remember me...
I was your laughing, breathing, breaking joke.
Do you regret all those lies...
I faded with each broken promise
Do you know why I stood by you
I loved you despite the pain
Do you believe in Destiny?
I think it is just another fairy tale
Do you feel anything?!

Do you remember me...
The girl who you used to break in two
Do you regret tainting and stealing my everything
Am I just another one of your trophies?
Do you know why I stayed?!
I was blinded by your mind games
Do you believe in soul mates?
I believed that once you were mine
Do you feel anything...


Do you remember me?
The silly girl who tried to be your everything
Do you regret letting me slip away?
As if someone like you could keep me caged!
Do you know why I fought back?
I can't spend my whole life waiting.
Do you believe in 'Happily Ever After'?
Now that Cinderella can save herself,
Do you feel anything other than empty?

Author's Note

I wrote this poem when I was 16 after finally escaping and trying to get over a very mentally abusive relationship. I know it is rough and not my best, but it is really where my writing started

"I know it is rough and not my best,"
Probably not your best BUT it's among the best I've read today. I love it despite the sadness it brings. Being older, this sounds like the lyrics to the theme of all women who lost the best of who they are because of the jerks they fall for, leaving them to appear less beautiful to the one that comes around finally, looking for who they once were.
A thought-provoking piece. Thanks for sharing.

One of the mental dilemma's we deal with when we break from an abusive relationship, spoken so well and pure. "Do you feel anything for me?"
