Did you know When you said those words to me What kind of twist the knife would take Did you know how badly I'd bleed Dropping me to my knees Was that the plan Rip out my heart and soul Leave me nothing more Sliding down that wall Tears flowing upon the floor Screaming out your name Wanting you to explain A love you claim to have lost Did you know you were my world That there wasn't anymore Fighting every word As it flowed from your mouth Wanting to die Wishing this piercing in my heart Were truly a knife Let me die It'd be so much easier Then killing me slowly, piece by piece Trying to hold me Me screaming "NO MORE, NO MORE" Pulling out the knife As to leave me with nothing of yours Did you know Asking me to forgive you Is asking me to die
This is a powerful and heartfelt piece...really good writing!! I especially like the view taken, how the offending party is all sweetness and worried that he/she be forgiven when their words are the end of the narrator's world. like I said powerful stuff!
Oh 1 wee thing, the line "Then killing me slowly,"...shouldn't that be "Than......" bloody typos get us all.
