Used, Abused, and Spirits Broken

I wrote this poem to my now ex-husband, he was cold, and abusive and I was young, and naive!!I was good to him, yet I was mistreated. This poem, after I wrote it made me take a long hard look at my life and decided that I needed and deserved something more!! Fellas treat your ladies, whether they are for one night your lady or longer, with respect!!


There is a love that I feel for you, that at times is not reciprocated.
There is a respect that I give unto you that goes unnoticed and unappreciated.

What is it that you need from me that you feel I have not done?
You know that there is nothing for you I would not do including giving you the moon, the stars and the sun.

To the ends of the earth, I would walk 10 million miles.
There is absolutely nothing I would not do just to see you smile.

Yet there is a love that I feel for you, that is not reciprocated.
There is a respect that I give unto you, that goes unnoticed and unappreciated.

So tell me lover, what do you feel? Do you feel the things I ask of you I do not deserve?
Tell me if you feel as if another would better serve?
Tell me lover, shall you give these gifts I am waiting to receive, shall ever be,
Because enduring this painful array of disrespect I absolutely cannot see,
The choice is yours, you selfish jackass, an empty house will be all that is left, because you refused to put your selfishness back on the shelf.

Bravo and Amen. You have a talent Lady, it is too bad it took such a rough experience to bring about such an entertaining read.

I was brought up the old school way; Yes sir, No Sir, Maam if you please. I open doors (car doors and building doors), pay for meals more often than not, leave flowers and notes where I know she'll find them, keep myself between her and the road or any type of possible danger, and so on. I believe a woman properly treated will reciprocate, even if it takes her awhile to figure out she is being treated so well.
To me, respect and proper daily treatment is more valuable in a true relationship then coming home with a small box thats worth more than my car.

I thank you cochise!! The man that I am with now is a treasure as you are!! Any woman, is lucky to have such a devine gentleman as yourself!! I totally agree with you about the little black box, too! Diamonds are a girls best friend, but I will choose love and respect over that anyday.

Just think how he will feel when you sell this song to the record label, it gets picked up by a top-ten recording artist, you make a bazillion dollars in royalties, and all because he blew it. LOL

That's rich!

I agree with you in the fact that nowdays everyone seems to think that anyone in their life can just be thrown around like trash.Been there.Almost nobody knows what respect is anymore and those who do are few and far between.I,like you,nowdays look for someone who at least will be honest and tell how they really feel.May you find who you search and long for.
