Begging. - Poem by Elizabeth Tyease Collins

When I reached my heart to you it was severed in two,
and as much as I'm bleeding here tonight I couldn't
see it without you.
Yes I've tried to deal with words that damaged
my flesh
left me naked with my own control
but to live this life without you?
I promise I won't let you go.

Pounce on me and pound on me
shoot me in the heart with a gun
set fire to all my dreams that I once dreamed but
are now forgotten like before.
Kill me and decapitate me,
spread my pieces all over the floor,
but don't tell me that you don't love me,
but that you love her more.

    I do love you. And weather I'm the person you think I am or not, I promise you, love is out there for you. I've seen love. I know for 100% sure that love is out there for whoever is open to it. Really, that's all it takes. Be open to love. Don't be too cynical. An you will find love. I promise. Sooner or later. (Report) Reply
