Yes, I Know

Yes, I know
I know you wouldn’t cry for me
Mourn for me
Get down on your knees and pray for me
I know you wouldn’t touch me
Squeeze me
Hold me close
Until I could hear your heart pound out a rhythm
For me to follow
Yes, I know
I know you wouldn’t grasp my hand
Talk to me
Stand in the rain and dance with me
I know you wouldn’t miss me
If I were to leave
And never returned
You wouldn’t kiss me
Love me
Soar with me
Yes, I know
All you would do is
Strike me
Burn me
Shun me
Hate me
Cut me down
Kill me
I wished you would love me
Even though it never could be
But, Baby

I can so relate to this poem. That is how I felt after you-know-who did all the bad stuff to me.
