I care about her so much.

But it doesn't matter

I long for her touch

But her happiness – I shatter.

I hurt her -it's true

(though I swear I didn't mean to)

I used to help sustain.

I used to be of virtue

But now, I cause her pain.

I'm sorry.

I love her.

Hurt was not my intent.

Though, I care –

I know

All I've managed to show

Is this pathetic lament.
