Silly Girl

there was a silly girl

who didn't see
the mistake she made
by trusting me

she gave her heart
she gave her all
and I tripped her up
just to watch her fall

I felt big by
making her small
used sarcasm and anger
kept her back to the wall

I didn't listen
I didn't see
that she stopped loving
wanted only to be free

now I’m sorry
but it comes too late
for too long I sowed meanness
and now I reap her hate

  1. Reminds me of a quote by Stephen King, that he has the heart of a child, and he keeps it in a jar on his desk. It makes me happy that the reap/sow thing actually worked here, sometimes karma doesn’t seem to work, or at least it’s too slow. Someone who sows hate should reap some too. 🖤

    • I’ve read that quote…always make me smile to think of it. 😊 King has a lot of good ones.
      Yes, I’ve found in life that what goes around, comes around. Sometimes the come-around works in my favor, sometimes not. 🖤

    • Thank you, Anita. Yes, it’s sad for the emotionally abused person in a relationship. And I think that sometimes, the one dishing out the crap realizes they sabotaged what could have been a good thing too late to make amends.
