Just Read It

Poetry By: LizLew

Jimmy? Please read it. It's the last thing I'll ever ask of you.

You can break me down and beat me blue,
I'm used to it from everyone, so what's new?
You can smash my bones and slice my skin,
I'm used to being killed with sin.
I'm a broken mirror, smashed and falling apart,
Seven years bad luck for creating mirrored shards.
You don't care for the way I bleed,
And, in complete honesty?
I don't either. I know I'm not much, a waste of space,
But believe these last few words I say.
I'm forever yours, and I'm in love with you,
Now and forever,
Beyond all time.
My heart was never mine, it's yours,
And it always will be.
You're the only reason I breathe.
You're the only reason my heart pumps blood.
You're the only reason why my blood flows through my body.
You're the reason I'm alive.
You're the only reason I wake up at all.
The only reason I dream.
The only reason I do ANYTHING.
Can't you understand that?
I need you!
I want you!
I love you!
Don't you realize?
I need you!
I want you!
I love you!
Don't you see?
I need you!
I want you!
I'm in love with you!
And I always will.
You asked me what I think of it, right?
It terrifies me.
It stops my heart.
It scares everything.
All dark thoughts come near and take over.
The knife is grabbed and sliced through my skin.
I can deal with pain, believe me I can,
But pain from you? That's what I can't stand.
What I can't power through.
And why?
Because I'm in love with you.
