Read Poem: I felt it too, by Krystle Nicole Martin

I thought it would last forever
I thought you’d be there forever
I thought it would still be a thing
I thought it would last us a lifetime
I thought wrong, did you feel it too?

I felt it too
I felt the pull
I felt the descent
I felt it rip
I felt it tear
Did you feel it too?

Once so strong
Once so fun
Once so enjoyable
Once so enduring
Once so loving
Once so strong has now met its end
Did you feel it too?

I waited
I gave you chance after chance
I wanted it to be different
I wanted it to work out
I wanted you to see my pain
I wanted you to hear my pain
I waited for you to change
Did you feel it too?

Brokenness
Exhausting
Loneliness
Misunderstood
Uncomfortable
Lost
Argumentative
Did you feel it too?

I needed help
I needed hope
I needed a shoulder
I needed a listening ear
I needed a friend
I needed you
Did you feel it too?

I held off
I broke it off
I demanded too much of you
I cared too much for you
I often wonder at night did you feel it too?
I can only take so much
I can only take so much hurt
I can only take so much neglect
I can only take so much abandonment
I can only take so much before I leave for good
Did you feel it too?

Did you feel the distance too?
Did you feel the division too?
Did you even care at all?
Did you even want to be there?
Did you even care to help me?
Did you even feel it?

I felt it
I felt it deeply
I felt it
I felt it strongly
It cut deep
I felt miserable
I felt used
I felt it
Did you feel it too?
