Nothing Left To Give - Poem by RACHEL ZARANTONELLO

It's amazing how you cannot see
The games you play, painful reality.
A constant torment, this emotional war
still you will defeat me
Your constant drama,
The need for attention, too
You're so convincing, these lies of your love
To make me believe in you
You kept me close like a blanket
Simply for security
I feel so drained inside
Do you see what you've done to me?
Why must you lie?
Look at the lives you tear apart
The choice is yours, you must face it.
It was yours to make from the start
When you are alone, do you regret?
With choices you make, you must live
Torn & broken, the lives you leave behind
When I'd given all that I had to give.
