Impact of Power

  • Author:

Every day starts out the same

Thoughts of you consume my brain

You played a cruel part in my demise

With your power you unlocked a deep desire within me.

To me it was everything

To you it was just a game of power

Your end game was only to feed your own desires

Never once thinking of the impact

You would have on my vulnerable life.

You carefully invaded and consumed my every thought

Slithering deep into my heart and soul

Completely devouring my whole being

Leaving it marked for death.

Once you captured every ounce of me

You backed away.

Not even realizing the impact of

Your lasting memory.

With your strong desire for power, you need to

realize there comes a responsibility.

One of nurturing and caring.

My deepest trust was given freely to you.

With nary a care you broke me.

Breaking my soul,

The very essence of me

Leaving me lost and alone.

How could you not know

The impact of what you were doing?

Or did you truly not care?

Now shattered and lost,

Tattered and torn,

empty and alone,

full of despair and forlorn

Crying and waiting,

Longing and yearning

to be filled with my deepest desire,

All of which came from the impact of power.

Thank you for taking time to read and comment. As in any relationship, a lot of emotions are revealed, good and bad.

Some people abuse the power they have over others. Sad poem, but it is often a sentiment people feel in a relationship.

Thank you for taking the time to read my hub and comment. I always worry when I write. I always wonder if I can really express the message I'm trying to convey. Thank you for commenting.

I wish I could toss some words around and make them fall like Well done proudmamma. I enjoyed reading this poem.

Thank you, I was just throwing some words together this morning. I even thought about changing it some once again.
