Trading tears

joanna scott 1967 (Birmingham)



You spent many days
making me cry
you hurt so bad
I wanted to die
soon I left
when the tables turned
I am happy now
but you got badly burned
thinking the grass was greener
on the other side
the acid tears now your torture
as I hold my head in pride

About this poem

I can't really put a description as I am writing it as I go. Finished it now I guess it's about hurting some one and the tables turn
