I Once Loved A Broken Man

I Once Loved A Broken Man

A Poem by Chelsea.

I Once Loved A Broken Man
Who wouldnt admit defeat
He scratched, clawed and dug
trying to get back on his feet

He wouldnt let anyone help him,
he wouldnt let anyone in.
and in the event of this happening
push everyone away including his closest kin

i once loved a broken man
his big blue eyes full of pain
he kept trying to fix himself
but couldnt see the real strain

he swore he could handle it himself
though never let anyone in
didnt realize the push and the pull
he was placing on family and friends

i once loved a broken man
with every fiber of my being
would have gave away the world
given the chance for us to be obscene

i loved him so dearly,
with every ounce of my heart
that when i knew it was time to say goodbye
i couldnt bear to part

i once loved a broken man
who couldnt control himself
so when he took it out on me,
i focused not on  my health

i endured every slap, hit and crude remark
focusing on hope that we could have a fresh start

i ignored every degrading sentence he spoke,
even those that sometimes left me with no hope

i once loved a broken man
so much i forgot my own worth
and placed in the back of my mind
the effort he lacked to put forth

i did everything that i could to make this relationship be
like forfeit a lot of the the things, i claimed to be part of me

i thought i had found a good guy
and deep down i know that i did
he just wasnt ready for the world
that i was ready to give.

i once loved a broken man
with everything that i am
and learned the hard way you see,
that not everything is meant to be.

Chelsea, you wrote a beautiful testament to unconditional love to the extreme, right to the end, till it was obvious even to you that it was not meant to be!
I applaud your your love and your loyalty.
The man that gets you will be a king for he will have found a queen.
