Because of You

by Erin
Written August 1, 2006

You meant something to me.
Sometimes everything to me,
and I swore to God you’re all I had.

You broke my heart that day.
The beating porcelain shattered
and the shards slashed my insides.

But thank God you were there.
If you left me afterwards
I’d have probably lost forever.

They hurt me those days,
disbelieving the intensity
of my unrequited love for you.

So thank you for staying true.
Six months have changed me,
but I’m all right because of you.
