I was always told,

If you don’t ask you won’t get,

So tell me why,

When he did not ask,

He still got,


He took,

From my mind,

My body,

My soul,

Until there was nothing left for me,

No bruises to heal,

Nor tears to console,

No love left to give,

For if he had asked,

I would have said no,

Turned my back on him,

And let him go.
