I can still remember that fateful day,
Despite all my love, you turned me away.
Your cold, callous heart turned mine black and blue;
You did not care at all, did you? Did you?
A whole year has passed yet I am still shocked
By all of the emotions that you unlocked.
They leak from my soul like a chilly rain,
Jealousy, hate, fear, lust, and crippling pain.
Each one wraps around my mind like laid rope,
Strangling my will to love, crushing all hope.
I’m in pain, but you do not feel the same;
Instead you smile at thought of his name.
You see him, and jump straight into his arms,
Only now giving in to love’s sweet charms.
He gets the love that I so desired,
While I stand alone, dejected and tired.
