Love Lost

by Mark Mangum
I feel worthless and tossed aside

Cheated and discarded by love
Found and lost many times over

Trusting in someone beyond their own comprehension

Laying down my life and all that could have been
To share it all with this unimaginable “one”

To have them take the love that I showered them with
And throw it in my face

To have them take that trust I had in them
Rip it to shreds
And leave that crumpled confetti beneath my feet

Tomorrow
I know
That he will wake and realize the damage he has done
And the hurt that he has caused me
And he will try to piece it all back together
Certain that I will always stay as long as he says
“I am sorry”
