I forgive him 

For the pain that broke my heart 

I forgive him 

For tearing my soul and life apart

I forgive him

For loving me and walking away

I forgive him

For using me for his good pleasure 

I forgive him 

For all that he has done and said

And I forgive myself too 

For lighting the fire 

Stoking the flame

Burning my fingers 

My hand 

My heart 

And going back 

For more 

More of the same

  1. Thanks for sharing these important words about forgiveness. I really enjoyed reading this poem Vonita. I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about forgiving in case you have time to look? Wishing you a good week, Sam 🙂
