Words to the boy I loved and lost.

I'd Sue You For Misconduct, but Apparently Breaking a Heart is Legal

by reasonsofbeing

So much for treasure…

the only chest I found was mine aching in pain You handed me the map! But there was nothing to gain You told me you wouldn’t hurt me, so I followed as you led...

But happily ever after, was really a dead end.

Here be dragons! it said and I should have agreed If I had known, I could have fleed But now the deed lay done and over And I'm left cold, hardened, heart-broken and sober

So give me some words, let me hold on, But what once was gold, is now gone And you're not Midas, nor am I, But I don't need a king, just the boy who made me fly

And I'm not religious, but you were my hymn You were my god that I chose on a whim

And now I hate you so much it could make the sky crack! But when the pieces fell, all that would break is my back I’d shield you from pain, because try as I might...

The only truth is that you were my light.

Wow!!! This was a precisely metered and rhymed piece of work. The wording was such that you delivered your message in the most poignant of terms. Great poem. Great allusions.
