Poem of Quotes Members


You’re moved on and married now
I bet I never cross your mind
Just some mistake in your recent past
That you’ve buried and left behind
I wish you joy and happiness
I hope you have a healthy family
But above all else I hope in days to come
You finally understand what you did to me
Perhaps you’ll have a little girl
With perfect brown hair and eyes
She’ll grow up sweet and innocent
Surrounded by strong family ties
Then one day she’ll meet a man
One with knowledge in things beyond her
She’ll fall for his words and into his arms
She’ll leave your warnings behind her
Of course you’ll see his dirty tricks
You’ll warn her of his intentions
Because once you were him and fully know
The truth behind suave inventions
She’ll cry when he says he’s busy
And the other girl is just a friend
He’ll condemn her for her needless jealousy
And announce that they are at an end
Of course that only lasts a few weeks
Before he pulls her back into his grasp
Floundering to stay above the ocean
Of his desire and finally sinking with a gasp
He’ll want her to be quiet
And swear never to tell a soul
It’s easier since you don’t like him
And obtaining her is his only goal.
You’ll see her sicken and waste away
As he devours all of her self worth
He feeds on people needing him
Your happy child loses all of her mirth
Maybe when you see your little girl
Go through what you did to me
You’ll sit right down to catch your breath
And I can get that apology.

Inkblot as I reread the poem there are a couple lines I want to rephrase and that one is one of them. I'm searching for a line that's similar in intent but perhaps not quite wishing the extent of happiness that line seems to convey. Ah! You know what they say about hindsight!

A fine piece filled with many emotions for the reader to ingest ... a roller coaster of life in a few lines. Well done.

The line "I wish you joy and happiness", seems out of touch with the rest of the sentiment.
