I forgive you and I still love you...


I forgive you,
for breaking my heart;
I forgive you,
for breaking us apart.

I still love you,
but not the way you want;
I still love you,
but I'm not yours to taunt.

I forgive you,
for snuffing out my life;
I forgive you,
for all the ills and strife.

I still love you,
but what now does it matter?
I still love you,
though my soul is shattered.

I forgive you,
for all the pain I've suffered;
I forgive you,
though none of it was buffered.

I still love you,
just not the way you planned;
I still love you,
but I do not want your hand.

I forgive and I still love you,
but the bond was never strong;
I forgive you and I love you,
but the words were always wrong

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
