"Just For Loving Me"

January 30, 2011
There he lies,
in his shallow grave,
put there by others,
just for loving me.

There he lies,
no color present.
Only a hollow shell remains,
just for loving me.

There he lies,
killed by their ravenous hate.
They claimed he had sinned,
just for loving me.

Now they lie beside him,
their death sentence received.
It’s all an endless cycle
just for loving a man.

I love it.  I feel like I can relate, but I also feel like I don't know quite exactly what it's talking about.
