All I Did Was Love You

There was a time when moments were good

A time I thought I understood

Funny I never heard the words as I look back

I just knew you and I were on track

I don’t know what happened ¬†along the way

Was it something I said that made you stray?

I am disheartened to say the least

How you turned into such a beast

Your bitterness like a knife run through

We were one, but now we are two

The monster deep within you surfaced

The love I once knew was now misplaced

You took my love in more than one piece

As my beating heart did all but cease

You took this man and made it a shell

Empty and void without voice to tell

Of the bitterness bestowed to me

Warranted not from what I see

My love for you was tried and true

Count the ways, All I Did Was Love You

My Heart Did Beat

From the very beginning unbeknownst to me

My heart was cheated, my mind dashed to shreds

I knew not at all, unseen as the ghost

Your words spoken, time over time over time

My heart did beat for want of love, it did

My soul did swim in fields of dreams

It swam to the beat of love’s deceit

Dauntingly you preyed on innocence

 Stripping the heart that stood before you, over time

You cared only for you, loving only you

Taking my heart’s beat, for love, my soul

Your eyes did hide intent to bare

Unloving kindness, you beast!

I saw not over time what you were

Who you are

For my heart did beat for love

Your lies graced my being, tarnished my soul

The air about filled with your stink of deception

Time over time, you unruly beast stayed

Because my heart did beat for love

Whispers tickled, reaching deep within

My mind swirled in dreams to the beat

Deep to the beat of wanting, not knowing

Your true intent to think only of you

How I wonder, could this be so long

Time over time, in this space of time

I missed the hint as it fluttered by

Was it my choosing to do so indeed?

I am now a shell of what I am, a hollowed frame

Stripped to the core, my now mindless soul

Empty, but wanting to feel

Love’s true beat in this heart stained blue

Each beat now aches with painful beats

Echoes through a loveless soul

You have taken, never given to me

My need to feel, to know the love

My soul hungered for, years over time

You slothful beast uncaring in greed

To be who you are, to have no soul

Go away! Come to me!

For my heart wants to beat for love
