The last time I saw you

The last time I saw you
I thought this would be
The day you could say
That finally, you love me

I laid in your arms
My head on your chest
I professed my love for you
The look on your face was pure unrest

You spoke of honesty
The kind you never give
Once again I say I love you
Without you I cannot live

You say you have issues
Because of them you can not
Give what I need
You’ve given all you’ve got

Well I have issues too
They all revolve around you
You say to get over them
Now this is what I’ll do

I will not be there
Every time you call
I will hear my phone ring
And crash it against the wall

I will not be there
Each time you physically need me
I cannot hurt my heart that way
You need to set me free

I will carry your scars
Till my dying day
An unsubtle reminder
Of how my heart had to pay

You beaten me down
Congratulation to you
What I must do now
It’s all because of you

I will spare you the comments about how dark, intense and evocative your writing is. I’m sure that you know. It really is incredible. You sound like your soul was torn asunder and left as crow fodder.

When I read your lines

You spoke of honesty
The kind you never give
Once again I say I love you
Without you I can not live

I got a chill in my very being. You had written the script of my heart.
I told someone that I would take the bullet for her, that without her, I was nothing. I took a bullet. It did not kill me, but it did leave a hole where my soul was.

If you are merely a talented poet, I commend you. If you have undergone a maelstrom of the heart which wracks your being, know please, that you are not alone. Funny how such ugliness can inspire the muse to create such beauty. Your work is beautiful. Blessed be.
