I Really Tried... - Poem by Micron

Are you still just sitting there dreaming film and song
While inside you know what you are clinging to is gone
Are you sitting drinking while life’s colours fade away
While theres a chance you could ask for me I stay
I tired so hard to be just your friend
But events broke it and we couldn’t mend
With each step forward we seem to go 2 back
I love you so much but what did we miss, lack?
I know you love so many good thing
But however much I try nothing good to you I bring
Are you waiting for riches, golden castles perched on hill?
You dream and your cruel words make me ill
Are you waiting for good luck to knock on your door
I'm sorry My love wasn’t good enough any more
It was freely willingly given is all I can say
Maybe you will see its value one day

The dragon inspired lol
