value

it amazes me
that you could
be so cold, like
i'm so easily
forgettable.
time goes by,
i don't even cross
your mind. how
you can so quickly
turn your life
around like i
didn't even exist.
it's nice to know
your life didn't
change, come near
nonexistence as it
did for me. all
the risks are
for me to bear,
i get the guilt and
pain of your lies.
thank you for
showing the true
way...i needed to
see how little i was
worth.

I like the way that she (the narrator) tells it to the man who told her the lies in the first place.

Something good usually comes out of something bad. We learn from all the hurt and pain.

So much emotion in this little poem!

The last three lines clutch at the chest. Linda's right; there really is much emotion in this poem, that reaches out to the reader.

Wishing you blessings this coming new year. Dream well. Cheers.
