Take A Little Piece Of Me

We sit together again
'My parents are
Fighting'
I'm being pulled apart
Like a string in
Tug-of war


Offer me your sympathy
Take a little piece of me


Joke with me again
Tell me cheesy one-liners
A deep resounding laugh
Happiness spreads across my cheeks


Smile genuinely at my contentment
Take a little piece of me


Call you on the phone again
'Mom and Dad are getting a
Divorce'
Listen patiently as I sob
Hear my pain


'I'll pray for you' you say
I lean on you again
And trust in your presence
Take a little piece of me


Today I wouldn't smile
You ask 'You OK?'
I lie sweetly
'Just tired'.
Can't tell because
It's you


Slowly you are
Slipping away
Removing yourself from me
Like old tape
Slowly, attempting
To not leave a mark


But I notice
This distance is a boulder
One more load to carry
My constant, you were
And, suddenly
You are
Dissipating
evaporating
Washing yourself clean of me


Oblivious, you were
To how many pieces you took of me
Oblivious, you were
To who you've become to me


You were my everything
But now
I'm left with
Nothing


You liar
Acting like you'd
Be here forever
Never forever
Not even tomorrow


You've become the final
Stone
To crush me


You thief
You took too many pieces
One by one
You stole everything
Even my heart


You took too many pieces of me
