You Were…

I’m so sorry, my Dear.
You were everything to me.
I’m so sorry, I couldn’t keep you near.
You were the inspiration for every verse.
I’m so sorry, but I was always sincere.
You were the one I would do anything for.
But, my Dear, you shut that door.

And, that door was bolted and nailed, so I could only cry and wail. A hammer does no good against the type of metal you were kept in, and an open heart does no good against poison.

You were my love
You were my heavenly guest,
But I guess you liked parts of me,
And not the rest.

I am screaming in your window,
trying to say that I love you,
but I ended up just coming across as mean.
Emotions can get the best of me, it seems.
It’s the cross that drags in my rear.
I’m sorry I broke what we had left apart,
but I’m sorrier that you first broke my heart.

You were is past tense,
No matter how much I wish that it was current.
You were mine, and now I can’t get past this.
If you’re looking for real, well I’m right here.
If you want fake,
then continue on the barbed path you’re settling to stand on
I would have loved you until the end of time.
I would have committed any crime,
But you’re not mine.
You’ll never be mine.

You were my love, my Dear.
You were my visitor from above.
But, you were a serpent disguised as a dove.
You are a painful unrequited love.

I am screaming in your window,
trying to say that I love you,
but I ended up just coming across as mean.
Emotions can get the best of me, it seems.
It’s the cross that drags in my rear.
I’m sorry I broke what we had left apart,
but I’m sorrier that you first broke my heart.

…And now his lies will sound sincere.
His insults will enter but never leave your ears.
And, I am left ultimately to blame for every last tear,
for every time I let you down.
For every time I wasn’t enough to keep you here.
I’ve never been enough.
