    You're fucking kidding me, right?
    Are words I hear every night.
    They eat at me from the inside out.
    Add tremendous guilt to painful doubt.
    God, I wish I could say
    Tomorrow I will make your day
    and trust you in every way
    But years of conditioned mistrust
    can't be undone by love I've left to rust.

    At every corner you're there to hurt me.
    All I see is a man begging to deceit me.
    Memories that bring me back to when I broke us;
    That time I caused the Angel to cuss.

    Please remember why you love me because I can't.
    Those soft words that comforted me, don't you recant.
    I promise I'll be better, I'll go farther.
    Don't let us dwindle into love that could have been
    just because I have some fears I' trying to amend.

    I know I'm hard- headed
    and beliefs of pride and strength are embedded
    But I will shed all my armor so that your arrow may find my heart
    and explore my every damned part.

    (Also something I wouldn't dare share anywhere else). Wrote it after a fight.

    You should share elsewhere because you have something worth sharing. I felt the same when I first started writing poetry, but after encouragement, I am now more confident about sharing what I write with others.

    Thanks sinister. I do share elsewhere but these ones were just a little too personal to share there.

    I "enjoyed" this one.. it's very well written I think and expresse many feelings effectively, and I feel the pain behind it. Thanks for sharing.
