A Wasted Sacrifice - Poem by white dove

I gave you all i got with me,
my heart, my soul, my life,
then i realized you're worth nothing,
and oh! the wasted sacrifice

my heart that beat only for you,
no lies within, closed,
my veins become so hard o true,
no blood through them is forced

my eyes that longed only your sight,
now nowhere see no love,
my lips that had taken flight,
lie pale as a white dove

i cannot live as i'm dead,
and i cannot die twice,
i cannot die my heart's still red,
and oh! the wasted sacrifice

i bleed and bleed profusely,
my from eyes, my heart, my skin,
i bleed not for you but me,
for the love i had withtin

and now my heart has a lead veil,
spread across it tight,
no son's power can now fail,
nor break it with all his might

i love, i fall, i hurt, i cry
i wipe my tears of blood dry
i learn, i feel, i realize
but oh! the wasted sacrifice! !
