Did You? ? ? - Poem by Shelly Price
Did you really mean to cripple me...
and leave me helpless when you said goodbye?
Did you mean to cut off the air I breathe...
when you told me your last lie?
Did you mean to cut off my arms...
so I could no longer feel my way?
Did you mean to stifle my voice...
so you wouldn't hear what I had to say?
Did you mean to stab my heart...
and leave me here alone to bleed?
Did you really mean what you said to me...
or did you think only of what you need?
Did you really mean to rob me...
of the love I cherish most?
Did you mean to leave me all alone...
with only the memory of your ghost?
I wonder if you realize what you did...
when you did what you did today?
Did you really mean to destroy me...
when you turned your back and walked away?
