You Put Me Down To Marry Into Pain - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I tried to tell you what I could do for you.
I tried to tell you that my love for you was true.
But,
What did you do?
You put me down to marry into pain.

I tried to tell you that my heart for you is pure.
I tried to tell you what I had for you was sure.
But,
You had been lured...
To put me down to marry into pain.

What makes you think I have waited,
For leftovers someone's claimed.
What makes you think that I've craved,
For a taste that's not the same...
From someone who has been changed.

What makes you think that I've waited,
For leftovers someone's claimed.
What makes you think that I've craved,
For a taste that's not the same...
Wet from sorrows soaked in shame.

I tried to tell you what I could do for you.
I tried to tell you that my love for you was true.
But,
What did you do?
You put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you,
But you put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you,
But you put me down to marry into pain.
I tried to tell you...
But,
What did you do...?
You put me down to marry into pain.

    To put me down to marry into pain.
    What makes you think that I've waited,
    For leftovers someone's claimed.
    Well said! Lawrence, but People endure!
