"Last On The List"

"Last On The List"

A Poem by damien anthony

Recently my ex decided to assault me after I decided I couldn't have him in my life anymore... as a lover or a friend. It opened my eyes, a lesson learned...


You did more that day than break my face

You snapped my life into view

A broken bone may hurt but I feel no pain

You’re crime helped me to understand


I’ve always chased the wrong guy

None have been worth my time

Although I’ve wasted too much

You took the last of my innocence


You’re the last on the list

Of the men who were not true

You’re the last on the list

My next will be better than you

You’re the last on the list

You fit in well with the rest

You’re the last on the list

The next one will pass the test


Up until you snapped and flipped on me

I wasn’t sure of my choice

It was when my blood pooled on your hardwood floors

That my every doubt left my brain


You’re not breaking the cycle

You just made it go round

I’ve spun out and now I see

Your ride was dangerous to my health


You’re the last on the list

Of the men who will hurt me

You’re the last on the list

I always knew but now I see

You’re the last on the list

And just like rest of them

You’re the last on the list

I’ve put you where you belong


I prayed that you would be my last

I should have been careful what I wished for

Instead of my forever

You were just an ending

To a chapter, a turning point

Not a book, not my life
