I cannot fathom
how extremely loathsome
I must be to look at

I'm a burden you say
getting heavier each day
but some would disagree

I've spent my nights
crying on the roof
hiding from your sight
afraid of your next move

There came a day
when I could take no more
I packed my bags
and walked out the door

I don't regret a thing
except for loving you
but I threw away my ring
it sank to the ocean floor

Your mind is a puzzle
each piece is deformed
some are missing
lost in the past

I run with the deer
I fly with the birds
and if you ever draw near
I'll cut you with my words
