i could...

i could take you in

under the guise of protecting you

from all of the insanity in your life

 

i could lay my soul before you

like a wench serving a feast...

   for you to indulge your every whim...

      devour me like chocolate...

 

i could forget everything i have tried to learn

and believe that your charms are different

   honest ~ innocent ~ true

 

i could give into the fantasies

and try to make them realities...

as likely as turning wine to blood

 

i could...

but i won’t.

because i never want to make anyone as miserable as i am.

I feel for you for your frustration cuts deep. Debby is right in that you have a good outlet for your pains. Your writing is touching and emotional. Don't stop.
