He never loved

me and he

showed it all

the time


Left me hanging

high and dry.

Left my questions



I cried maybe

half the time

in between sobs

asking why why why


It started to become

clear but sex was

good so it kept

me near


Rotation of women

Invited to his room

he couldn’t even keep

a count


I wrote sad poems

and cried

while I made

them rhyme


Always had eyes on

all other women

around persuing them

without care


So I’d go home

with a frown wonder

what was wrong

with me


Coffee not sweet?

Chicken not right?

Not good enough for

the night?


Until one day

I was sick of

only him enjoying

the ride


Truth be told

I came maybe 1 out

of 10 times, by my

hand to satisfy


He never loved

me but I do

did and

always will


So with men like

that, I’ve learned to

close the door. Ladies

just say no to manwhores.

    Wow. I really really admire honesty in poetry. This was a very honest piece. Great writing.
    Just so you know, we aren’t all manwhores lol

        Lol well give him a good punch. Bringing our good man name into disrepute like that lol. Writing is amazingly therapeutic.

        I find sharing them helps with the therapy more than not sharing although some are harder to share than others. It helps build an inner strength I feel.

        Definitely better to share. The beauty is to transform the human experience into art. Making those transformations happen help build the inner strength.

        That’s very true and so eloquently put. Can tell you are a poet! Lol it’s taken me a long time to learn how to share my feelings which is why I’m like I am now I believe. But writing is a start and has shown me it’s ok to share. Just got to learn to do it via talking now lol

        Haha thanks. Sharing feelings makes you vulnerable. It’s not easy to do at all. Part of the trouble with feelings is being in tune with them as well. Most of the times people aren’t taught about different feelings. You can do it. It’s just one step at a time.

        Aw thanks. I have therapy once a week which is helping a lot. I’m slowly getting there. One day at a time. So long as I have my pen and music I’ll be fine 🙂

        A good therapist will help you so much. There’s no time limit, just be patient with yourself. You’ll arrive when you’re suppose to as long as you’re working towards it. I’ve been going to therapy for 2 years and it’s helped me a lot.

        Thanks. I’m open to the idea and have found one I feel comfortable with so that’s a start. Glad yours is helping.
