    i can't sleep
    on my back
    the wounds are still healing

    they're small
    like from daggers
    but deep

    but i can bear it
    because i still love you

    i don't think you want to hear my voice
    on the other end of the telephone
    you'll probably look at the caller id
    and roll your eyes
    even though i just called
    to say
    i still love you

    you'll probably instantly delete
    when you see my e-mail address
    re: i still love you

    your words pimp-slapped me in public
    and i still got in the car
    and rode with you on your painful journey
    you, asleep, drooling on my shirt
    with your head on my shoulder
    your hand on my back
    re-opening wounds
    i thought had closed

    but i still love you

    you've torn me up
    from the front to the back
    broken heart
    back bleeding like kunta
    the pain almost made me
    hate you
    but it didn't kill me so
    i'm stronger

    and i still love you

    you don't love me back
    you don't care about me
    my existence has done nothing for you
    but you have done a lot for me

    thank you
    now
    I know
    a little bit
    how God feels.....
