My Weaknesses by Monique Barnard

Monique Barnard 9 May 2011 poetry Comments Off on My Weaknesses by Monique Barnard
I begged I pleaded
I asked for forgiveness,
but you, you would not relieve me of my burden.

You laughed as I cried
for my pain was your pleasure.
I was weak, fragile, I asked for help,
but nothing, nothing as you stole my life.

You thrived on my pain,
and found joy out of my sadness.
When I cried out for you, you would laugh,
laugh at my weakness.
For I, I cannot stop,
as I still need you in my life.

I’m currently in Grade 12 in Krugersdorp. My favourite poets are D.H Lawrence and Emily Bronte.
