[tab id=1]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.[/tab]
[tab id=2]I’m currently in Grade 12 in Krugersdorp. My favourite poets are D.H Lawrence and Emily Bronte.[/tab]
