Quoth the Poetess- Nevermore

I left myself vulnerable
I left myself exposed
But that will never happen again
No, nevermore

I offered myself to you
I sacrificed my soul
But that will never happen again
No, nevermore

I shared secret fantasies
All the dreams I had in store
But that will never happen again
No, Nevermore

I let you in the Holy Place
Where your image I adore
But that will never happen again
No, Nevermore

I let you taste my passion
Let it soak you to the core
But that will never happen again
No, Nevermore

I gave you control of me
Gave in to your whims and more
But that will never happen again
No, nevermore

I gifted to you my body
And let you caress my soul
But that will never happen again
No, nevermore

Though I gave you all I had
And opened my heart’s door,
Though to me you were a king
Whom I lived to please and more

You did not value me aright
Nor treasure me…what’s more
I KNOW that you will long for me
Now and Evermore!

    Oh Harry, my sincerity and superfluousness haven't always protected me but have brought me pain. Some things are better left unsaid. A hard lesson to learn. Your words bring healing and some tears. I am not well, but thank you for this kind and generous comment. The sun is peeking behind the clouds. :)

    Thanks, Richard. I love Edgar Allen Poe! Perhaps because he dealt with depression as I do. He had a troubled mind, yet...beauty flowed from him. Much like Van Gogh..another favorite of mine. Richard, you are very supportive. This means a great deal to me. Thank you.
