Damaged and Nearly Broken

You hurt me today

You returned — into my life
Seduced — one another
Again I fell — in love

You hurt me today

Your passions at home — unfulfilling
To me you turned — wanting
Lustful needs — yearning

You hurt me today

Your wanton sexual desire — fulfilled
My love fueled passion — used
My soul — discarded

You hurt me today

There was another — more importantly cherished
I was the other — negligibly acknowledged
Insignificant and inconsequential

You hurt me today

There were no more fantastical moments
Not even a few seconds to share
You no longer had need

You hurt me today

You thought I felt — neglected
It was — scathing rejection

Cruel — abandonment

You hurt me today

You proclaimed — I am done
You flat out said — fond memories
You made it clear I am — no longer appealing

You hurt me today

Why?
 I don’t matter
The answer is that simple

You hurt me today



I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell. 

“Who am I?”20190630_1305207795170130459536580.jpg

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.
However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to visit my website,
