A Poem by Zamantungwa Da Poetess

From the heart

Never again
Will I be that little adorable girl
The one who laughed at everything you said
The one who thought no one could be more perfecter than you
Never again

The pain has taken away my sunshine
The scars have replaced my beauty
A frown is where my smile used to hang
My eyes are always glassy
Not because I'm happy
But because I'm fighting back the tears
Tears of the pain that constantly lingers
Within the depths of my heart.

I look back with the hope that I can, we can find a solution to this mess
And go back to being how we were
That little glance I take
Brings back happy memories of a time long ago
But also the pain of the crash our relationship suffered in the not so far away backtrack
It hurts because
Never again

Will I be able to look at you and not feel the pain of the way you judged me and condemned me for sins unknown
My love for you will never be innocent and pure
I will always have the little doubt that you are loving me with reservations.
I wish I could cry out the memory of the words you said from my mind,
And curse out the pain the "I couldn't care less" look left on my heart,
It can never be formed anew,
I may forgive you in time but
Never again.
