Favorite Quote:
God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

This love binds me here.
Tell me why you have tethered me here
And left me alone in isolation?
Surely you do not mean to watch me rot in dilapidation?
You promised to return, but now I’m not so sure.
Maybe it was a lie.
Maybe you left to be with her.
All I know is that I would gladly slit my throat to be with you.
I would drain my veins for you.
Whatever makes you happy.
I want to see stars in your eyes when you look at me.
I want you to love me like I love you.
So we can get lost in passion like ecstasy.
The chain-links are digging into my back.
I can barely breathe,
Without you to lean on.
It’s getting cold now.
And I can hear the dogs in the background of my cries.
When will you be coming back?
Sometimes I think I see you in the sky.
Maybe it was just a cloud.
Maybe it was a mirage.
But it was probably god’s sense of humor.
It’s day 23.

Baby, I can hear the dogs.
They must have sensed my fear
Or smelled by desperation and my blood.
Baby, I’d do anything.
Please come back to me.
There was a time when you once loved me.
But now these dogs want me more than you do.
Baby, please come back to me.
Please save me.
