Foolish

I had a deep conversation online with someone from my past and the truth flowed from my mouth like poetry....
It was a rhythm that was sooo smooth that I felt the need to blog it.
The text in blue are the comments from the person in my past. I felt the need to keep some of what the person said in so that the poem would flow.

Although it was a conversation don't read it as a dialogue
Read it
as if it were
Poetry

You are always concerned with how other women view you
You want her to like you
You want the other one to want you
I am over that
You want the next one to sweat you
I'm over that
You always had it all in me plus more
But u through it all away
Well its too late
I'm in love
You love him like you loved me?
No
I love him better
I love him for the right reasons
I love him because of how he treats me and makes me feel
And what are the right and wrong reasons?
Loving someone because of longevity is wrong
Loving someone after they disrespect you is wrong
Loving someone that loves you is right
I allowed you to make me small
I allowed you to abuse me
I allowed you to use me
And I loved you through it all
You didn't deserve me
You didn't deserve my love
But I gave it all to you
Thinking it would make you open your eyes
Thinking it would be enough to keep you with me
It wasn't
But I still love you today, foolishly

Perhaps that feeling will never leave because love leaves a scar. The scar main become less conspicuous with time but it's still there and every once in a while it will ache as a reminder.
