Cut Off A Limb


Cut off a limb
Cut off my arm
Cut off anything
You've already
Ripped out my heart

You taught me to love
Showed me to breath
Stopped me from suffocating
Then you
Choked me

I gave you my all
I gave you my best
Showered you in love
But you
Tore me in half

You chased out my demons
Threw the money off my back
Laid the nightmares to rest
But you
Were the true monster

I gave you jewels
Devoted my love
Gave you everything
But you
Didn't think it was enough

Now I'm drowning
Fighting for air
There's no oxygen
But you
Don't care

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
