! ! ! ! ! ! ! *-Curtain Call-*[the.End] - Poem by Elizabeth Tyease Collins

With every pulse that has thumped in my heart,
with every ounce of denial and distress I've caused you,
I say with the upmost respect that I adored you,
I become you,
I loved you,
I was you.

With every smile to every kiss taken
cuddled, kissing, giggling,
every minute i spent I never knew would be my last so i abused whatever love for me you had,
but I realized that the light had shown upon me and showed me
the truth,
there was no more me and you.

For every tear I cried for you to every poem I wrote about
you I knew back then that what we had wouldn't end,
it couldn't, I told myself over and over, it wouldn't,
but it did.

A fool I was for thinking such things,
for thinking with everything that i've put you through
that you would still stand as my Superman,
no, I've let that image go,
I let myself down,
and I drowned.

Eyes open I see the heartbreak,
I see ever mistake and every thing I said,
with every lie I've kept and every blood I dripped,
to every laugh I have engraved in my memory,
you left out of happiness,
to be free for your own good.

I can do nothing now but let you go,
live life on your own,
and leave me completely alone.
