Words Hurt

Poetry by Magdalena Garcia

You shattered my world with your words, and continued to live your life with no care in the world.
Mentally you destroyed me, but I'll never give you the satisfaction of knowing.
I shared my pain with people that actually care.
People that I know love me, and would be there.
People that would help me with my healing process.
I will heal from this like I healed from the rest of the things you did.
Know this...
I'll forgive you in due time, but I'll never forget.

I Gave You

Poetry by Magdalena Garcia

I gave you my shoulders to cry on
My arms to hold, and comfort you 
My lips to kiss
My ears to listen

My hands to wipe your tears 
My body heat to keep you warm
If I could have given you my heart as to replace   
yours I would have given it to you.
Seeing you in that much pain made me go insane.
I knew I couldn't take it away,
but knew I was going to be 
with you every step of the way.
Magdalena Garcia
