All You Could Do

Posted by kristenwillms@knights.ucf.edu on December 31, 2017 at 5:45 AM

I lay myself at you mercy

You through me to the ground

I placed you on a pedestal

It only came crashing down

I put my love out on the line

All you could do is take what is mine


I gave you my heart

You tore it to shreds

I gave you my affection

I saw returned not a thread

I cried enough tears to fill a pool

All you could do is make me the fool


I showed you my concern

You gave me no consideration

I tried to make us work

You ran for isolation

I gave you it all

All you could do is let me fall


October 1986
