Impact of Power
Each day is started all the same
Thoughts of you consume my brain
You played a cruel part in my demise
Using your power to awaken
a long lost desire.
To me it was everything
To you just a powerful game
A desire you filled for your own gain.
Never once thinking of the impact
You would have in another's vulnerable life.
You carefully invaded and consumed my every thought
Slithering deep into my heart and soul
Completely devouring my whole being
Leaving it marked for death.
Once you captured every ounce of me
You backed away.
Not even realizing the impact of
Your lasting memory.
You desire power and with it
Comes a certain responsibility,
One of nurturing and caring.
My deepest trust given freely to you.
With nary a care you broke me.
Breaking my soul,
The very essence of me
Leaving me lost and alone.
How could you not know
The impact of what you were doing?
Or was it you truly didn't care?
Now shattered and lost,
Tattered and torn,
empty and alone,
full of despair and forlorn
Crying and waiting,
Longing and yearning
to be filled with my deepest desire,
All of which came from the impact of power.
