Yet All I Wanted Was You


Blackness surrounded us like a swarm of flies
in which were casted up from satan's layer,
or shall i say...your home.
All you ever could ever do was tell me lies after lies.

Yet all i wanted was you.

You twisted my heart and ringed my pulsing blood out
to the extent where i couldn't even shout.
You stole what was left of me and pushed me out the door,
so hard that i fell straight to the stone cold floor.

Yet all i wanted was you.

Now and then you intrude on my dreams,
only to awake me with a lost daze
of what i once thought was love, but was nothing but a
hateful phase.

Though everyday i carry with me the pain and sorrow
of the damage you burned my heart in.
Black ashes fell to the floor,
after i whispered
'No more, no more.'

No more will i ever feel the sorrow.
Not today, and certainly not tomorrow.
You tossed me in a pit of fire,
seeing nothing but watching what i once had drift
higher and higher.

You've accomplished damaging me
enough to kill me twice.
Oh yes, i've paid the price...
Of only wanting you.

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
