Because Of You - Poem by Jackie Oakden

Because of you I can't fear anything else anymore
you're the reason why I go screaming out the door
you're the reason why I sleep on the floor
in my dreams all I see is you and bloody gore
because of you my big soul tore
into millions of pieces now I'm poor
I can't go buy a new soul at some store
because of you I can't fear anything anymore
the only thing I fear now is you
pretty soon I'll be your only fear too
