Gave Everything

She gave him everything she had.

Her body, soul, and heart,

She thought they would be together forever.

Her eyes folded into her face,

Tears so sharp, bitter and fierce

They’re salting her in place.


She’s yearning for joy, while

Dealing with the tragedy of losing

A man once very sweet,

A man now lost in his shadows,

Her sadness under his feet.


Her life at home is full of nothing but pain.

Feeling violated and scared.

No matter how hard she scrubs,

that feeling is still lingering on her.

The numerous scars covering her

body like paint to a canvas.


She misses the way he used

to hold her and how he gave her

a gentle kiss that made her feel safe.

Now, he brings nightmares and pain.

No amount of words can express

how terrified she is being near him.


She’s suffocating.

The memory of him will never go away,

even if she wishes it away.

She gave him everything and

somehow, that's still wasn't enough.
