    AT FIRST

    At first I found it flattering
    how you treated me, but then
    I came to realize how
    much you hated me.
    At first I thought it admirable
    how much you complimented
    me,but then I realized how
    much you despised me.
    At first I found it comforting
    to know you were there
    at my beck and call,
    but then I realized how you
    came to own me.
    Did I find it strange
    that all these things
    seem to happen for
    no reason, no for I
    thought, it was me
    you like with unconditional
    love, at every season.
    Perhaps one would
    say, "that was the kind
    of person you wanted anyway."
    would that be an untruth
    has my life served for any
    other proof.

    At night I cried full of uncertainty
    and despair, you know people
    used to say "those two are
    quite a pair." But now that you're
    over here and I'm over there,
    it seems to me the only thing
    now, is shame and tears.
    I don't believe you meant
    it grow this way, with emotional
    fears to be put on display.
    At times I wondered who
    would ever love me,
    like a night in shinining
    armor you rescued me.
    Uncaring to the world
    around you, you accepted
    who I was continually, until
    the day I said "I do".
    Our world seem to shatter,
    as a time of bliss, void
    of all happiness sealed
    with a kiss.
    Awaked all the emotions
    of pain, imprisoned souls
    bound for the journey of
    rejection we claim.
    I won't talk any further
    my body cold and my
    mind in need of rest,
    for I think I've said it all
    and I think you to this
    will attest.
    So lay your mind at ease
    and your heart,
    let their be calm
    for it was not
    all your fault...
    for just as it is
    written, the man
    and woman must
    become one.
