Because Of You - Poem by Bancroft Boreland

You said you needed me, you said you cared
I thought your intentions were good
I guess I misunderstood
To make you happy was my only aim
But you destroyed me, allow me to explain

No longer do I fall asleep
Because I’m afraid I’ll dream of you
I burned all your pictures
Yet every time I look in the mirror, I see you
I try to hold my breath forever
Because if I breathe, I’ll smell your perfume
Now love is a disease to which I am immune
My heart sang your name with every beat
Now it’s in a comma, forever asleep
Why! Why does it have to be this way?
How much longer will this nightmare last!
I don’t want to keep living in the past…
