Capital Punishment - Poem by Snake Blocker

Capital mistake number one was assumption.
Number two was neglecting.
Number three was disappointing.
And that was three too many.

I waited too long.
I held too much back.
I wanted you to love me regardless of my "screw ups."
But I waited too long to fix my insecurities.

The worst side of me came out only when you were around.
But if you can't love me at my worst…
You will never appreciate me at my best.
Apparently, I wasn't what you were after.

Capital mistake number four was that I loved you too much.
Number five was transparency.
Number six was the indecent proposal.
And six is an unlucky number.

I wanted unconditional love.
But you put conditions on me.
I wanted trust and loyalty.
You wanted to dig for gold.

You wanted the things I never wanted to give you.
And you hated the priceless gifts.
You loved showing me off,
But you never did anything for me.

You would never be here if I was nobody special.
You wanted to wear me like a ring.
And you wanted to wear me out.
Enough capital punishment…I'm moving out of your chair.
