If I Gave You - Poem by Michael Tunduli

If I gave you my heart
Will you trample and let it die?
Will you misuse, hurt and discard?
Will you close your ears to my cry?

If I gave you my trust
Will you break it?
By my having trusted you?
Won't you even care
You will forever never gain it?

If you knew you matter most in my life
Would you use that for your own gain?
If you knew my boldest fear is strife
Would you use it to my misery and pain?

Yes tell me dear,
Will you ever use me against me?
Tell me
Will you ever use the tear
To have what you want
When sense and reason
Can't give you your demand.

If I told you my strongest weakness
Would you heartlessly exploit it?
Over and over and endless
Will you sweety?
