Poem: Fate Will Return the Favor

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.


Your love not withstanding
the test of time,
playing games
leaving my mind overloaded.

Hurtful actions,
lies spoken with each word
trying to hide your true self,
thinking the grass is greener
with your new toy.

When fate returns the favor,
I hope I am still here to watch,
to see you heartbroken,
lost, and dismayed,
for all the games you played.

"Lesson in Leavin" by Carrie Underwood
