Hemorrhage - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Hemorrhage
Date: January 15,2016

Baby…too much time has passed us by
All the passion…I can't revive
You're bound to know I tried my very best
It was up to you, to do the rest

Love can't survive, a one way street
I've waved the flag of my defeat
There's no time left for second chances
It just won't change our circumstances

I'm tired of living with this lonely heart
It's clear we're a million mile apart
You…in your world, me in mine
Not worth the risk, not worth the time

Baby, all the passion, I feel for you
Is something I simply can't undo
But I know it's time to find a way
To live for tomorrow, not yesterday

Fate was never on our side
Too long forsaken, too long denied
You still can't bring yourself to say
Three little words to pave the way

I've tried…but I can't change your heart
I think I knew that from the start
Still…I'd like to think, your heart is kind
That you didn't set out to ruin mine

I truly loved, all that you are
Never dreamed that it would leave me scarred
Please give me back my mundane life
I don't deserve your bloody knife
