Anger Poem about Love

Poem About Giving Up On 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 an endless cycle until we either win, lose, give up, or die.

When We

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 but 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.

I have been dating a guy for 3 years, and recently I moved out of state to pursue college. Ever since I moved he feels that there's no trust between us, and he makes petty excuses as to why he doesn't trust me. I'm not the cheating type, but I feel as if he's hiding something and he's accusing me of all these things to keep me off his radar.

You know guys have a hard time with that kind of situation. I'd give him time. As time moves forward he will understand it's not your job to make him understand. He might get the wrong message. It would be nice to call him once in a while. He's probably just looking for reassurances.

I have been with my husband for a little over 5 years now. We have a beautiful little girl who is 4. And we are both going through exactly what this poem is saying with my husband. I feel like this poem has said the exact words that I have been needing to say but could never figure out how. Thank you. Beautifully written.

I've been dating a girl going 5 years now, it started sweet but now she's totally changed. She cheats on me without thought. Every time she says she's sorry. The fool I am I keep loving and taking her in. I tried so many times to forget her. But I can't. I'm caught, hooked to a woman who loves me not. Felt like I wrote that poem, because it's too late for me. I've sealed my fate!

I have been in a relationship with my boyfriend for about 2 years, and I feel like we have no trust between us. I don't know what to do because I still love him.

This guy said that I am pretty, but then I discover that he's dating one of my friends who's name is Melissa. Then he breaks up with her saying he only dated her so he would not hurt her...he used her. Now he's dating this girl. What's the deal he just uses the feelings of the girls he dates.
