Poetry On Odyssey: Words Hurt

Poetry On Odyssey: Words Hurt

Speechless and Broken

Words are more powerful than we will ever understand

"But darling if you're hurting, please just take my hand."

That's all I needed to hear when you tore me apart.

It's not a matter of when I will heal but rather where do I even start?

People always say, "words can never hurt me,"

I guess we can agree to disagree.

They must have never heard their world whisper "I don't love you anymore."

Watched the one they love walk right out the door.

But maybe it wasn't those words that cut me deepest

Maybe it's the fact you left me at my weakest.

And possibly what we want to say is more important than what is spoken.

All I know is you left me here,

Speechless and broken.

To My Future Husband Who I Will Love

You will make me happier than anyone ever has.

Dear Future Husband,

Let me start by saying, I am a piece of work. I am needy and yet lacking some trust, I don't always know how what I am feeling but I will expect you to know, and I need a constant reminder of how much you love and care about me.

I will constantly be looking for your approval even if I don't need it and ask you if I look fat in an outfit (the answer is always no, no matter what!). And I doubt things and will continuously ask you do you still love me? or do you regret marrying me?, that will never change.

With me saying all of that trust me there will even be days when you sit there and think to yourself what did I get myself into? or wasn't she was completely fine a minute ago? Also, there will be times when I come home saying that nothing in my life makes me happy and I wish I could just start over. but the morning after I say this I will wake up in tears apologizing profusely for saying you do makes me happy because trust me you make me happy then anyone ever has.

I will give you a heads up now - even though I won't always like you, I will always love you unconditionally.

Of course, we will get in our fights; because every lasting relationship has them. I will refuse to apologize or admit I was wrong because I am unbelievably stubborn (sorry, our kids will be too). But in the ending one of us will take defeat (you) and everything will work out.

But I promise you, you won't regret your decision to marry me, and when I promise something, I never ever break that promise.

EVER. (I really hope you know what Disney movie that is from) I will be with you through thick and thin, making sure you are okay every single day. I will find every way to make you happy and nothing will stop me from trying to help you with every problem you have or any dilemma going on in your life. I will make you open up to me even if I don't open up to you.

Although that may sound forceful you'll be thankful in the long run. On top of all that I will be willing to let you make me a better person and allow you to help me grow into my full potential.

Finally, when we have been married for a few years and have a dog or five (that's a must no ifs, ands, or buts) I can say will full confidence I am up for starting to grow our family and teach our kids whats right from wrong, what it takes to be a good person, and force them to do things with us even when they are angsty teens.

I know you are going to be an amazing dad and husband with your perseverance, strength, and never ending love. No matter the circumstance you will be willing to do everything for your family because that is who I married; someone who can be their hero as well as mine.

I love you,

You Future Wife
