The Best of Me

written at unknown age

Shadows befall my sunken heart
The twisted words of your mind have torn me apart
To beat me into loving you was so cruel
You enforced it as Gods rule
You demanded my love and devotion
You forced my empty emotion
Shadows befall my troubled mind
The consequence of your treacherous heart
Deep inside me you will find
Why would you want to be so cruel
You forced forgiveness as Gods rule
You spoke of lacking love and devotion
Save my soul, you said there was no potion
But i survived
God kept me alive
Protecting the best of me
So you couldn't have the rest of me
