Cameron Ross Harless


crumpled, depleted, small
I curl into a ball of shame
you've left me here
hating, loathing myself

'what is wrong with me? '
'what does he have that i don't? '
I asked in desperation.

you didn't answer.
you just looked at me.
i turned.
i ran.

i ran into His arms.
His blood-stained hands
pulled me from the ground
from the muck.

'Nothing, ' He answered.
'You are beautiful.
He may have her,
but you have me.
And you always will.'

Tears swelled.
I found love.
love worth dying for!
love worth living for!

and it wasn't yours.
and i'm glad.
I found a perfect love
while you share in your selfish desires.

This heart i offered you.
It's mine.
And it will never be yours.


I found a perfect love
where my fears are cast away
where i can be held
and not thought weak
where i am truly loved...
