You say I didn’t love you,
but here is the truth of the truth,
that you don’t want to hear,
I loved you too much, too much to bear.
I would have loved you,
until one lie became many,
until I lost every penny,
betting on the games you played,
until everything I grew, decayed,
until I could be swayed, away,
from the life I laid,
until no one else remained around,
as I followed you to the ground,
until I ran out of time,
to have a child of mine,
until my kindness, turned to weakness,
until I gave in, to let you win,
against my own common sense,
and I bent, and I bent,
until I broke my skin from within.
Until I had nothing left,
but my love for you,
and the destruction of my life,
offered up as proof.
Your happiness relied,
on giving up mine.
I have nothing left to give,
So, please just let me live,
Just let me live.
