A Woman Knows How Loud She Can Roar!

Poetry allows the release of my innermost feelings. Let me explain by painting a picture in your mind with words!

A Woman Knows How Loud She Can Roar!

I closed the door as I walked away, with tears streaming down my face
You had no clue this time was for real or what I found out yesterday
I loved you with all that I had to give but that wasn’t enough
While I was busy trusting in you, you were chasing her love

True love lies...

I told you that I trusted you and that when I'm with you I'm free
You said the same things back and that we were meant to be
Boiling deep inside you was a lust that dragged you under her spell
You willingly followed her as she threw your heart into the deepest waters of hell

In the depths of hell...

Tell me, how could you lie straight to my face?
Did you laugh at my trust as you smirked and walked away?
Oh, you thought you had me for good this time, didn't you?
Why did you act surprised to my goodbyes, but deep inside you knew?

You knew...

You said “how can this be? You were supposed to be mine forever!”
“And I know that I lied to you, but I thought I was being clever!”
This empty space fills your heart, and the hole is disastrously deep
When you weren’t looking, our love died, then I learned to care about me

Our love... died...

You knew exactly what you were doing, honey, that story has been told twice before
You didn't bet on my woman's intuition or how loud a woman can roar
I don't hate you; I just don't give you permission to hold that part of me
Starting my life over, yes, it's hard, I'll be fine just you wait and see

Then the woman roars...

I wish you a good life in whatever you want for yourself
And that you find what you are looking for and that you are doing well
So, I’ll take this mess and leave right here... do with it as you see fit
Life goes on and I'm roaring now like the eagles against the wind...

And life goes on...

Life is deep… liars always fall, they measure the fault line then answer the call…

I did leave him 18 months ago and it was the hardest thing I had to do and thank you for reading my poem, my friend!

It's true, Donna when a man cheats on you, it's hard at first but eventually, you will leave him and roar and get along with life. I love the hidden message in italics. Marvelous poem indeed!!

I just read all the italics together...i had not done this before.

I love it! I love how you put a hidden message inside your poem.

True love does lie...in the depths of hell but the woman does roar at the end.

Hi Brenda, yes, it was hard at first and my heart was shattered because he was the first guy I had trusted in a very long time and on top of that, we had been best friends since we were 7 years old and so the fairy tale ended and although we remain, friends, it's not the same.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate it!

Also, if you look deep into the poem there is a message written in italics! :)

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on December 16, 2019:

It's amazing how one can lie straight to your face...but it happens.

I don't understand why he thinks it will hurt you less..the truth is always better to hear from the one you love.

Starting over is painful. Mo matter how you feel you will wonder why he was drawn into her mystical spell.

This is a Good write.

Unfortunately, it does for both men and women...
