Your Loss - Poem by Snake Blocker
If only you hadn't left me.
You should have never left that day,
'Cause I did all I could do for you, Babe…
But still you walked away.
I said I'd never let you down.
I thought our trust was greater.
You met another "standby."
And then you told me, "Later."
You said you might see me around…
Around and about, while I'm writing and hating.
You said you just want to stay friends.
I've heard that before...but I'm lying here waiting.
You knew I only wanted the best.
You said that you never would hurt me.
Is it now you want more than the rest?
I was living the dream…and it burnt me!
You told me your future was found.
I offered you more, "Lying-Face on the ground."
Should I tell you to walk out the door?
Should I blow you a kiss…should I call you a whore?
It's true, you helped me some,
But sorrow's my confession.
I thought you were "the one."
But you're a lost expression.
You were the love of my life, full of virtues…
But for virtue and love we must pay.
The price that we pay is pathetic.
Some love we must take to our grave.
Some losses need no reflection.
It's a loss you can't afford.
Some experiences need no appraisal.
After all, Babe…who's adored?
Your loss…I'm still adored!
