ponderous

that you would love me hereafter
despite the broken words and mangled dreams
i never promised
the false smile of my joy that i cannot feel

that i would want you hereafter
despite your desperate please
you always promised
the honest agony of your heart that i cannot feel

i despise you more than words
worthless and emasculated i leave you
i never promised
the empty vessel of my heart that i cannot feel

Wow, I love your poetry. Very powerful, with the underlying air of power and contempt, but beautiful at the same time. Keep it coming. : )
