Don't be surprised

Don't be surprised

A Poem by LadySoDivine
"

Some people never learn. Denial can be quite a b***h, can't she? ;)

"
You've gotten so good at pretending,
I can't recognize you anymore
And it's like you don't even remember
What happened between us before.

As if you have forgotten all the days spent
With laughter, our smiles and kisses;
Or the nights that I spent crying,
When you didn't care about my heart which turned to ashes.

When I confront you with the truth
All you can say are lies
And then you dare be confused by
Why we said our goodbyes.

So, don't be surprised by my hurtful words
They just present how I felt for so long
And your feelings don't bother me no more
Because I know that with you I don't belong.

And don't be surprised when I don't crawl back
Unlike you, I have my dignity still
And don't you ever expect me to beg
Because by now you should know that I never will.

And I won't be surprised when you hate me tomorrow
Nor when you say some lie about me again
I am used to that from you by now
Because, like I said, you were never my friend.

I'm not surprised that you love me still.
Every time we cross paths, I see it in your eyes
But I honestly suggest that you don't hold your breath
Because when I don't look back, don't be surprised.

Author's Note

Why is there no "revenge" genre? Apparently, a lot of people could use it. :P
Anyway, a little bit experimenting with the format. Something I read recently "inspired" me, so that is the reason behind such a theme. Hopefully you'll enjoy. :) Reviews would be highly appreciated, thank you. ^^

Great venting in this poem! I liked how you changed the margins midpoem...as if you had made an empowering decision and were moving on in a different direction. I hope this was a catharsis for you. I have a feeling the person for whom it is intended will never really get it....often they don't. Remember, living well is the best revenge! :) Lydi**

LSD, you have opened someone's eyes I'm sure with this wonderful poem. I like the formatting, the way your thoughts move across the page only to become centered at the end when you toss out the final blow. Very nicely done my friend.

I like the poem a lot. It was strong and sad at the same time. I like the honest and direct thoughts. Pain and hurt make us know we can't go back. I like the closing lines a lot.
"I'm not surprised that you love me still.
Every time we cross paths, I see it in your eyes
But I honestly suggest that you don't hold your breath
Because when I don't look back, don't be surprised."
The above lines are true for many. Learn too late what they had and it is too late to seek forgiveness. Thank you for the excellent poetry.

Thank you very much for the detailed review, Coyote. It means a lot :)
Ha a 'revenge' genre, like that, should be! Good rant of a poem...I felt your words here cut like a knife!

And 'your' feelings don't bother me no more
