Payment Comes In All Forms - Poem by Scarlett Treat


You said you would
And, for sure,
You did.

You didn't cost me
A single red penny
Of my hard earned money...
But you made me pay, and pay!

I payed in the long hours
I lay awake, hurting,
Missing you, crying,
And being alone.

I payed in all the long hours
When I walked around my world
Like a Zombie, the living dead,
Not even know I was alive.

I paid in all the relationships
I passed up, thinking that
YOU were the only one
I would ever love.

I paid with all the friends I lost,
The ones who no longer saw me,
Because I was no longer
Any fun to be around.

But mostly,
I paid with a life - - -
My Life - - -
By not having you.
