– Shelly-Ann Daley Novemeber 2008
I cried…. for the people I loved,
For the people I did not love.
For the people I tried to love.
For the people I never got to love.
For all the pains I have been through.
For all the pains I will go through.
For all the pains you put me through….
Though you never knew.
Though I never spoke.
The pain, it still lingered.
Like an unpleasant aftertaste.
I looked back and I cried for all these things-
The pain, the guilt, the hurt,
the feeling of being undesirable, unwanted,
unloved… what’s worse than the feeling of unrequited love?
The question is simply answered…. nothing
Nothing worse…. And I cried
Pains of a piercing wound,
Pains of a breaking heart,
pains from the memory of a stopped heart.
