36 (who?)

They say you know you have forgiven a person
when you stop telling your side of the story
and start telling the truth.


At first, I thought: 'it can't be normal
to hate a person so much you hope they die
in Afghanistan.'  But then I realised that when they say
hell hath no fury like a woman scorned
they aren't saying it for shits and giggles.

So now I'll say it:
I hope you get shot in Afghanistan.  


No.  I cannot forgive you.
Not while I still want
your hands in my hair and
on my breasts and hips and
back and undoing my dress
and your lips kissing every
inch of my skin.
I simply cannot forgive you.  


I keep buying new things,
as if Kleide Machen Leute and now I'll have
the perfect man and I won't even think about you
But it doesn't happen,
and I just have to find ways of paying.


They say you know you have forgiven a person
when you stop telling your side of the story
and start telling the truth

but the truth is this;
I loved you, you broke me,
and never said sorry.

only the margins to write on now.  I love you.  I love you.  I love you.  
edit: 02/12/11 - ahhhh December, madness! So after some amazing help from :iconsunshinegypsy: I've gone through this poem and changed verse iv quite substantially and the rest a little bit and I think it feels better now, more polished! I'm kinda psyched to do this to more poems. Feedback is of course appreciated!


Vergangenheitsbewaltigung is a german word that represents the idea of working through and overcoming the past and moving forward with the future, usually used in connection with victims of trauma and distress or in a more institutionalised sence with the idea of Germany as a nation overcoming the Nazi past.

Thanks to anyone who faves or comments! Anyone who comments on my work will get a comment/ critique on one of their poems in return as my way of contributing to dA!
