    You loved me to ~Death~

    You ripped my heart'
    from its entire frame...
    and watched me bleed,
    as the rip remained.

    ~you sure loved me to 'death...~

    Then you burned my soul,
    like a torch in the night...
    and I stayed there burning,
    with no sign of flight.

    ~was you slowly loving me to 'death?...~

    My mind is on edge,
    and my baby keeps crying.
    but I can't tell my child,
    that her moms slowly dying.

    [email protected] I wish you didn't love me to 'death...~

    You scapped my pride,
    till it was raw to the bone.
    I can't scream, can't cry,
    I'm down to a moan.

    ~you tried to love me to 'death...~

    And finally at days end,
    when I drop off to sleep..
    I dream I'm in quicksand,
    and I'm falling in deep.

    I always find myself pulling,
    back out of that sand...
    and I knew I was put there,
    by the hands of a man.

    ~I admit...you [email protected] near loved me to 'death...~

    When you practice what you preach,
    be careful of what you say,
    and because of the spirit,
    is why I'm here today.


    if you set yourself on "FIRE"....the world will come and watch you burn.!

    Love should never cause us to fear for our lives, and yet many live with that exact fear, sleep, and then finally death their only refuge. Such painful images you laid, clearly posed on point.

    Scars are just a reminder...to not repeat what gave us the scares in the first place. Pain...in time, leaves. We are warriors and nothing can keep us down right?...thanks for the time and luv.
