Over Half A Decade Of Heatbreak - Poem by Chris Prewett
I've done everything possible you've wanted me to do,
But I guess that's still not good enough for you,
I gave you the Valentines Day about you dream,
I've been your punching bag when you needed to let off some steam.
I've been the shoulder where you could lay your head and cry,
I've cuddled you for hours at nights without you giving it a try,
I've given you gratification more times than I can count,
I've come to see you instantly when you've wanted me round.
I've loved you for years, and been as loyal as a family pet,
I've treated you like you were the greatest girl I've ever met,
I've stood up for you to people that I've known longer,
I've grown worse as you have gotten stronger.
'You have to trust me' you said,
So I did but once again I've been misled,
Thrown away like a bad habit, like a forgotten feeling,
My heart can't take that, after the last time it's still reeling,
I'm running out of hope, I'm running out of love and time,
I thought that this in this one you'll finally be mine,
But once again I'm wrong. As our love sinks to a shallow grave,
This time I will not be the one to make the save.
It's up to you now, to save what is rightfully yours,
But to do so we need to eliminate our relationships flaws,
however if our saga ends today, I can be happy with my effort,
But will you be my girl? Maybe you should give that a thought
