I Loved You To Death

I Loved You To Death

A Poem by Scarlet Letter

Death can bring out the worst in people.

I loved the way your eyes
Filled with adoration 
At each glance.

I loved you to death.

I loved when your smile
Lit up the room
When I walked in.

I loved you to death.

I loved being in your arms
When they held me tight
And I finally felt safe.

I loved you to death.

I loved you when you were cold
Your heart turned to stone
And your eyes became dull.

I loved you to death.

I loved you though it hurt
When the darkness closed in
And I was left with just a memory.

I loved you to death.

I loved you in the night
When you were gone
And I laid there shivering.

I loved you to death.

I will love you always
But as I reach for my knife
With my last breath I'll say...

I loved you to death.

I love this. Its truthful. Its dark, and you can really see the story> its true you can love someone yet watch them change into someone that no longer loves you within a short period of time. I love on the poem progresses so quickly and your left feeling the pain of the charcter by the end. I love it x

I love art of all forms. The types I practice are writing, charcoal/oil pastels, music, photography, and more. Every time I look at something I see if it would be best as a picture, drawing, poem, or .. more..
