"Because I Love You"
Don't hold your breath too long
For everything you said was wrong,
Insulting my love for you, keeps playing over and over like a sad song
Am I nothing more than a tease, dirt from your ribs?
Remember Adam, I myself can no longer accept loving you in the third person,
Adam, I seek no justice, I know how to walk these gardens alone
I never asked for your heart, only your company and friendship
Every other day fell into place, with love, respect and protection
Should you banish me, insinuate things like a God?
Why do you mock me, and cut me the way others do?
Adam, your sword is much powerful than mine,
I read your chapter,
You spoke and said you won't walk through The garden's of Goliath
Adam, does it matter now, your slingshot took me down
I did not mean to tarnish us, or make you feel the apple peel
My heart is not of evil, why do you crucify me, as if I took a second bite?
I entered a realm, where I knew Adam's Apple would be the best
Again, you did not speak, nor set rules with boundaries,
As I did when I revealed the name of the snake, which comes in two
For you I will move on, and be strong, knowing I will long for your touch
As I did before we exchanged our first kiss
I can never undo the bite, however, I can take down the elegance of my words
Remove it from the devils dusty path, I wish no harm, nor reminder, of what was
Adam how can you say you loved me, then easily exile me from Eden number 2
You marked the move I made, called it a disgrace
Secretly, you struck me with a lightning whip
A picture that, striped my dignity down to its nakedness
Should I run in shame again, fall to the ground?
Have you cast stones every time you pass me by?
Did I deserve this, after I offered you my true sweetness!
A wetness I never revealed to anyone but you
Thank you for every special stroll under the moonlight
Adam, as dysfunctional as it may seem, it takes two not one
My heart for you, was coming from the true art of a beating drum
You took my love and tossed it out the door, allowing Satan to win
I myself allowed the trophy to sit on the wrong shelf,
I'm tired of defending my life, preaching, and teaching,
Reaching for the right person to rescue me from the beatings
I wish I could sit in front of you, look you in the eyes,
So you can hear me say, never would I take a man like you for granted
My sweet Adam, for you I cut my veins every night, in hopes I bleed till I die
Tomorrow will be a different day, but the same heartbreak
You say you are not running, yet you took a different direction
Well, here I am, expressing my mind and free will again
Never will I ask for another chance, I'm not up for rejection
Instead, I want you to know, I want you to be happy
I will smile everytime I see you,
Wondering, if you found the easy way out
Forever in my heart,
Poet Eve Menace
