Love Gone Wrong

I stood there
In the alley
With you close by

You said
It's okay
There's no need to hide

But I could see
The wide grimace you had
And the dagger
You clutched in your hand

My breathing got heavy
I started to tremble
You crept ever closer

I started to worry
And question myself
How could you be
The man I wanted to marry

Why so afraid
You asked with a blade
Come here
I'll put an end to this madness

I couldn't come out
I was still too afraid
But I couldn't help myself
When you screamed my name

I still loved you
I couldn't hold back
I came out of hiding

I yearned for an embrace
Instead
I got a dagger
Lanced in my side

You tried to give me
A kiss goodbye


But because you refused
My second chance
It tasted
A mouthfull of mace
