The Saddest Thing I’ve Ever Learned

Abuse by ~xchildofvasolinex on deviant ART

When I was a girl

I would sit and listen to my auntees

and other older woman talk

about having to marry men they did not love

and how they eventually "learned to love."

I thought that was about the saddest

thing that anyone could ever do;

to marry someone and have to "learn to love"

was, in my opinion, the most sadistic,

most saddest, existence I could imagine . . .

until I grew up and I married

a knight in shining armour . . .

who turned out to be

a nightmare in shining armour . . .

and I began to . . .

"Learn to Hate"

Cordie I admire your bravery for times gone past and times present, times to come. Yes it may be in the past but the lessons are with you to this day. I can’t tell you enough how sad I am that you went through this, hell. You are an incredible person with such a true spirit, everything I guess does happen for a reason otherwise we would never be here! Sorry off topic I know.
Beautifully written as always – perhaps I need sleep for a change lol MWAH!

I echo the sentiments of the previous comment writers. Cordie, your life-generated poetry is very moving and inspirational. For many, the auto response is the roll up caterpillar defense mechanism. That is a good position to die in, but not to keep on living.

Sorry Cordie I waffled so bad in that comment, that image threw me in a slight spin. The sentiment is the same. I am proud of who you are, proud to know someone as brave as you to have gotten out of that, the poem is beautiful. *huge hugs* to you my sister.

Eventually learned to love…it is sweet to

Have to learned to love…harsh but still sweet if successfully done

Knight in shining armour, oh lo, if only the Nightmare in you was apparent before…

Learning to hate…may very well be devastative but you are one brave soul, Cordie, among the rest who have walked before you – to walk out of such a web…may those who are walking in the web realize the lessons here..

Beautiful, as always 🙂
