Tell me please... what did I do to you?
by Pamela Lynn Peresada

You may as well cut out my heart, 
Rather than do what you've done...
Pretending to love me, holding me close,
Making me feel you loved me the most,
Telling me I was your very best friend,
Causing such pain, the kind with no end.
Tell me. Please... I don't understand.
What did I do to you?

You took in my love, accepted it all,
Shared the same bed, but cared not at all.
You took all my gifts,
And gave me some back,
You showed all your cards,
With the deck that you stacked.
You would speak of my kindness,
And then you'd attack,
Striking with your heart, colored black.
Tell me. Please... I don't understand.
What did I do to you?


You'd fill me with love,
Then leave me to starve,
Just leaving the pain
From the message you carved,
Tease me with hope,
Then take it all away...
I'd feel just so helpless,
As if I were your prey.
So many things I wanted to say,
But the voice had just gone away.
Tell me. Please... I don't understand.
What did I do to you?


You've kissed me so softly, 
Yet drove the knives deep...
Made all those promises, 
Knowing there were none you would keep.
You said you'd never leave me,
Then you moved away,
Left me so hurt,
I was but a game that you'd play.
Tell me. Please... I don't understand.
What did I do to you?


You spoke of so many dreams that you had,
Telling me that I was a part,
Yet you flushed all the dreams,
And recycled them all,
Almost as fast as they'd start.
It filled me with sadness,
And left me to suffer,
Gave no protection,
Not even a buffer.
You left me this way,
To crumble apart...
Picking up the pieces
Of what is left of my heart.
Tell me. Please... I don't understand.
What did I do to you?


You killed me inside,
When you said that we're through. 
You've said it's not me,
You said it was you.
And all of the mess I had to get through
For the sake of my children, and you.
I just can't comprehend
Why in the world 
Would you do unto me
What I would never have done unto to you?
