Sapphire's Poems

_______Flowers________
I got flowers today. It wasn't my
birthday or any other special day.
We had our first argument last
night,
And he said a lot of cruel things
that really hurt me.
I know he is sorry and didn't
mean the things he said
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today. It wasn't our
anniversary or any other special
day.
Last night, he threw me into a
wall and started to choke me.
It seemed like a nightmare.
I couldn't believe it was real.
I woke up this morning sore and
brusied all over.
I know he must be sorry
Because he sent me flowers today.

I got flowers today, and it wasn't
Mothers Day or any other special
day.
Last night, he beat me up again.
And it was much worse than all
the other times.
If i leave him, what will i do?
How will i take care of my kids?
What about money?
I'm afraid of him and scared to
leave.
But i know he must be sorry
Beacause i got flowers today.

I got flowers today. Today was a
ver speacial day.
It was the day of my funeral.
Last night, he finally killed me.
He beat me to death.
If only i had gathered
Enough courage and strength to
leave him,
I would not have gotten flowers
today.

The author of this poem is Unknown it was published in Ann Landers Column
I hope in some small way this poem will help someone in an abusive relationship
get the courage they so greatly need to leave and start a better life.

_____ Lifes Confusion_____
As I sit here all alone
I wonder where my life has gone
Never knowing where it will take me
Not knowing how long it will be
Our time on this earth is precious and limited
Tears fill my eyes as I see people take advantage
Killing thier fellow man,neglecting our children
Destroying the life that was given to them
Always complaining about the raw deal
But never trying to turn it around
I wish I could show them and make them see
Thier actions are what makes it that way
The poor children that sit alone in the gutter
The ones who will suffer from our poor judgment
I just don't get it why do they do it
Is there fullfillment in pulling that trigger
Is thier excitement in watching a man fall to the floor
What has the world come too
What have we done
When13 year olds are shooting off guns
Killing the people who are trying to help
My eyes swell up with tears everyday
Trying to make sense of all that that say
The answers I know I will never get
I pray for the children and hope that one day
They will learn from the mistakes that we made
As I sit here alone
I wonder where my life has gone
Never knowing where it will take me
Not knowing how long it will be

__________A Lasting Love____________
Love has found a way
To break these walls of pain
I have been in misery
Longing to be free
Then you came along
You opened up my heart
We've been down this road before
This time i won't close the door
I was such a fool
Treating you so cruel
The years we've been apart
Always a longing in my heart
You were never forgotten
Now here we are again
Both stronger than before
This time our love will last
Lets forget about the past
Both our lives have changed
But our love has been reclaimed
Together we will be
As we set eachother free
From that life of misery....
Breaking through the walls
Love has found a way.....

_________My Heart______________
My Love is true as it will ever be
Is yours as true as you say it is,
or am I alone in this misery
You say your in love,
But then you go away.
My heart is ripped apart and you have nothing to say,
Why did you do it was it something I have done,
All i wanted was to talk , but yet you are gone.
Forever in my heart,Forever on my mind,
I will never forget you,
Even though you left me behind.
We knew from the start that it could never be real,
But something inside kept that hope alive ,
That one day soon we would meet and express the love I thought we both shared,
But I guess I was wrong, I guess to you it was a game.
Now i sit alone with my heart in my hands that you so carlessly threw away.
I hope you are happy and things go your way,
As you see I not mean and spitefull that way,
We ad a good time and for that I am grateful,
Iwill never forget the times we have shared,
But it is time I say goodbye to you my love,
It is your choice and you have made that clear,
and I shall respect the decision you made,somthing I know you have not done for me.
I only hope that we remain friends,
That is something i could not bare,
I need you in my life in a way I cannot describe
I will not hate you and will not complain because you see, I love you it is that simple and plain
My love is as true as it will ever be,
Forever in my heart you shall be.
