I lost perspective so fast.
I mostly want to lay down, let time pass.
For I never meant to hurt no one, as I left behind the past,
though I am a freak giant, walking on glass.
and as it cracks, ever so slowly,
I broke hearts of people who know me.
If only, they knew, I never wished them harm,
perhaps she’d be, sinking in my arms.
For yes, I was hurt too.
At times I felt, I was just and true,
Though I, the hero of my story,
on other pages,cruel.
I feel misunderstood.
I feel so out of place, crude.
For if I could, I’d run away,
but the truth, no place for me to stay.
So I roam, alone until I dawn.
I think of past, to make me calm,
perhaps I’d breathe in thoughts of home,
though, she chose and now she’s gone.
Sometimes we sit and reminisce.
It’s been me and God, ever since.
Only she knows, the truth within,
I loved her all too much, that’s my sin.
I loved her and wanted too much for myself.
I was greedy, in love and not in wealth.
And now I sit alone and seek for help,
if you read these lines, tell her how I felt.
Tell her I meant no hurt.
All I ever said, was to put me first.
And although I see that I am cursed,
through time I grew and faded into dirt.
Tell her to come my way.
For I am just a giant, who fits nowhere.
Knocking over life, head above in air.
Never meant to harm, never meant to scare.
This is simply life and no it’s not fair…
