Looking your way must have been the hardest thing to do,
for my heart would skip several beats, and i couldn’t catch my breath.
Even at that moment, i knew
that my heart belonged to you.
You promised to cherish me with your smile
and you protected me with every warm embrace but
I should have turned and run without looking back
but something held me still. Perhaps it was was your touch or how we fit?
Either way too late...
it was at that moment i gave you all of me to take.
I tried to show you how much i loved you
with every longing glance,
when i would nurse you back to health,
or when in the rain we danced.
You were easy to give into
so i didn’t hesitate to hand over my heart.
Your love and passion felt so strong for me
that I didn’t think another could make you fall.
We shared a great romance together.
It was unfortunately cut short
when you decided that to another you could give your touch.
I waited for you to appear that evening
but there wasn’t as much as a call.
I swear my heart sank to my feet
as it felt someone else in your arms!
You needed to tell me she was not quite enough
and that she was all a lie from the beginning.
I tried to listen with all of my being
as i heard the regret in your voice
about the life, with me,  you were now sharing.
She kept you out
but at the same time she kept you too close.
Im so sorry you are with someone now.
We must both live with what you chose.
What are you wanting to take? My heart?
What for? You’ve already broken it and stolen the only pieces that were left!
I don’t have any more to give
for even my soul refuses to live!
Your now tainted touch selfishly pulls at me as if pleading for me to stay!
Why won’t you free me from your cold prison
It really is all painfully unfair
to see that she’s the one that won!
Although she may never love you as i did
she’s still the one you see.
She rises to your beautiful face every morning-
and all i have are tears!
There is nothing where my heart should be
only a coldness that whipsers your lies!
Your memories, reluctantly, i will keep
but i can’t understand why?!
Im alone and incapable of love and a thanks
is owed to you alone.
I will never feel another touch or trust someone’s embrace
nor, never, will another have my heart to hold.
