I Gave All
by Ella  Kay

Looking back,
I should have seen
the end rushing forward.
Blinded by ?rosy? hues
coming from a childs heart,
I did not see,
You walking away.

I believed words
given to pacify,
as fact.
Excuses, accepted
with a smile.
Living in my dream
watching the nightmare
begin.

Hearing the door close
on my heart.
The sound crushing my spirit.
Slamming my soul to the floor,
soundlessly
ripping my love
from my arms.

Curled in pain,
tears raining from red-rimmed eyes
I question my part in this
separation.
Could I, should I, did I?
The answer comes slowly...

I gave all.
Nothing withheld.
And in return
Was shattered into pieces
by the hand
that held my heart.
I gave All.
