Anger Poem about Love

This is written from experiencing a marriage and several relationships with a "bad boy." My home girl and I have spent years watching, waiting and standing behind our ol men, who have lied, cheated, abused, been locked up and taken us for granted. It seems like and endless cycle until we either win, lose, give up or die.

When We

© Dana Schwartz
When all we hear are the empty promises and lies,
that leave behind broken hearts and shattered lives.
When trust is gone and hope is lost,
what are we fighting for and who really pays the cost.
When you tell us you're sorry and you do it again,
Why do we believe you, why do we keep giving in.
When we finally realize we made a mistake,
it's too late, we've sealed our fate.
