How dare you
You spinner of lovely words...
How dare you weave me a web of glistening endearments
Only to trap me in their sticky, meaningless embrace?

How dare you
You artist of deception...
How dare you paint me a picture of love
That was only a forgery to begin with?

How dare you
You bearer of lovely items...
How dare you shower me with priceless affections
That in the end were mere plastic coins?

How dare you
You coward of a human being...
How dare you claim to be a brave knight
Only to run before the battle even began?

How dare you
You double-sided coin...
How dare you show me your clean face
Only to expose the filth that lay with a simple flip?

How dare you
You foul excuse for a human...
How dare you claim me as your precious treasure
Only to abandon me as if I were only trash?

How dare you
You inconsiderate, spoiled child...
How dare you take possession of my fragile heart
Only to throw it back once you had broken it?

How dare you...? 

Heart break sucks... And from it I composed this poem.  I originally wrote it from a woman's point of view but them I really thought about it and realized that women break men's hearts as well.  So I changed it to just speaking to a person in general.

Part of my inspiration for this piece came from :icondestinyblue: 's piece: fav.me/d58us07 She has some PHENOMENAL work and I really encourage you all to check out her work! 

I wanted to give the broken-hearts out there a voice and hopefully help show them they aren't alone.

Hope you all enjoy!

I wrote that the night my "boyfriend" broke up with me over text message.
I was tired and out for blood so all my feelings came out in that poem.

Sad, but beautiful. I really like this.. Strangely, or more of coincidentally, I needed something like this right now.
