The Last One


     Pain & fear    of the unknown
     This pain is the consumer
     I live inside it at its heart
    & my heart is heavy 
           & fast & hard
     pounding in my stomach
     my sick thoughts begging to get out
     my result
     waiting    eternal suffering
     for my flaws
     my weakness to tell me
     to show me 
     what I have lost.
     It was not just a game
     for me.
     It was my love my soul
     tossed aside     mocked
     shamed         trivialized.

     I've been so many 
     naked     numbered
     wearing   nothing
     but their tags;
     but you're the last one
     my heart does not beat 
     the same
     it always skips
     like a broken record
     You're the last one
     I'm forever naked now
     in just your chains
     I no longer wait in line
        cast aside 
     no one calls my number
        or name 
     It was not just a game for me
        pain & fear
     pounding in my stomach
     like vomit begging to get out
     You're the last one
     My heart does not work 
      quite the same
     it always skips   a little bit
