A Broken Love
You were broken when I found you.
Hurt, crippled with pain, lifeless.
But a distant light shone through your faults.
I believed you could be saved, that there was hope.
I was deceived.
I cared for you and your wounded pride,
Time passed slowly, everyday wasted, just trying to get you to smile.
I could see that you were jaded, that you needed comfort and love,
I gave all that I had but it wasn’t enough.
Your baggage was too heavy for my slight shoulders.
I began to buckle,
All other aspects of my life began to fall apart,
Friends, family, work-
You became my life.
I could have gotten through it if I had you on my side.
Like a child, your constant dependence smothered me.
Guilt stopped me from desertion- you needed me,
Or so I thought.
Unhappy years crawled past and depression became the familiar.
By this time you had taken so much from me that I had nothing left.
But you, you thrived on my vulnerability, encouraging my misery.
Elevating yourself with my pain.
You gained strength and began to leave the house regularly,
Only to return home in the early hours of the morning stinking of bourbon.
I was too weak to argue and too scared to ask where you had been.
I would lie awake all night, eyes blurred with confused tears, wondering why I needed you.
I was broken when you left me.
An empty shell, no emotion, just tears.
There was no hope for me.
You had extinguished my light long ago.
