“I ONLY love you if you do what I want you to do”
I will dictate when you are to do it, not you, not anyone else
“I ONLY love you if you say what I want to hear”
I will give you the script, penned by my hand alone
“I ONLY love you if you NEVER hurt me”
Forgiveness will be granted, sparingly
A limited offer, that can so easily expire at a moments notice
Otherwise, if you don’t do those things, I won’t care. AT ALL! FOREVERMORE!
You won’t mean anything to me
Discarded, like useless, worthless rubbish
I will forget you
Trade you in for something fresher
Willingly wound you, taking pleasure in your agony!
Treat you like an adversary, an enemy, a wayward criminal
Hate you and belittle you, enjoying your disintegration
As I witness you BLEEDING PAIN from your Seams,
and later, all of your seams falling apart and you, undone
Then contentment will wash over me in waves of ecstasy…
Part One of a Two Part Poem/Series – (The other part has been started but not yet completed – it will be a totally positive, uplifting & romantic poem)
Loving relationships between a man and a woman are something that we all need and develop a strong desire for from a young age. But there is an underlying complexity to romantic relationships that we mostly ignore while we are first spending time together and getting to know each other a bit more. That complexity can destroy the relationship during [ lets hope that things go better for everyone & anyone concerned than that! LOL :)) ], or some time after the first date – it depends on the people involved and how they are compatible.
The first part of this two part series lists some of the “rules” that our “throw-away generation” has decreed for romantic relationships and most people would have wanted those rules to be obeyed by their partner. Either throughout the entire duration of the relationship, or according to how they were feeling emotionally at a particular point in time.
The last bit of this first poem portrays just how far downhill things can go when the love dies and the relationship becomes one filled with anger, not love. A terrible, sad way for things to end! Every concept in this poem is exaggerated quite heavily, just to take things to their most negative, hate-filled extreme. I don’t condone or approve of the ideas. I’m just imagining how someone who has the wrong concept Real Love might think & react, or someone who feels really hurt could react as the relationship fails.
