    All he ever wanted
    Was for me to be his
    For my eyes to focus
    On only him

    Which I did
    But what reality is
    His delusions took over
    Ruling his mind, body and soul

    All he ever wanted
    Was my undieing love
    All my affection
    But he left me alone

    He put me out
    Over trivial things
    Made mountains from molehills
    And made my heart bleed

    But I was there - I was there
    I always came back
    No matter if the break up
    Wasn't even my fault

    Because all he ever wanted
    I wanted to provide
    His reason for laughter
    His needs and his pride

    All he ever wanted
    I tried tried tried to fullfill
    But you see that word tried
    Can become tired as well.

    I know what you mean, sometimes, you just get tired of being tired. Eventually that r and i had to be reversed. I could feel the sadness in this well written piece.

    Cindy,

    There is something so special about your work...
    It just speaks to me...like a soliloquy
    Beautiful in all is shades of melancholy...
    I loved the last two stanzas....powerful point

    My love and prayers are always with you my sister!
    Sage
