Affliction Most Severe (I'M Letting Go) - Poem by Elizabeth Sheaffer
My body lies broken, bleeding on the floor,
The very image you once claimed to abhor.
But this is what you wanted, to witness all these tears.
Isn't this, for so long, that which you longed to hear?
Isn't that your goal in life?
To cause me pain, and bring me strife?
You, who told me many times,
That you wished I would just go die...
Are these the feelings you call love?
Is this what everyone dreams of?
Such pain and torment, all consuming,
Devouring me whole, yet still blooming
Out, to spread the cursed sickness.
But, I swear, as God's my witness,
No more will you cause me pain.
No tears shed for you again.
I'm through with you, with all these lies.
You got your wish-You, I despise.
