Last Dance

I stand before you, mentally beaten and bruised Pained by the thought of your very existence You have consumed me for too long An obsession I would rather have done without Sadly, I am a tortured soul Being pulled from one extreme to another Is it wrong to not want you to be with anyone else? To wish of you, just for me? Am I selfish to keep you at bay, feeling that I can do better? While secretly hoping for me to be your one desire in this world? When without you, I yearn for your touch I am wounded with each day’s end spent alone Carefully, I will you to need me for your very survival, even just to breathe Yet hypocritically, I breathe on my own, just fine without you It seems I have loved you forever You are my one true weakness, my downfall I suffer alone, as I ache for you to no end And shamefully hold inside my soul, a sinful knowledge That in a perfect universe you would be mine only As I would be yours, for the taking Alas, the time has come as I quietly mourn For this is the end of our journey together The final night, so bittersweet I give you everything, just this instant Two hearts joined, swollen with memories past Carefully intertwined, complete with the utmost pleasure and pain It is one which we shall never forget So come, before we part ways This is the moment we have been awaiting One last dance together, my darling
