"Until It's Gone" by Linkin Park

I didn't understand when

you turned your back on me.

I couldn't comprehend how

my love you couldn't see.

I shouldn't obsessively think

of you and I till the end.

I didn't randomly find

a love that wouldn't bend.

I wasn't the only one

mutual love in a friend.

I fretted what had changed

that a loving hand couldn't lend.

I eventually heard it from you

my words cut down to the bone.

I refused to just ignore

the fact my words turned you to stone.

I frantically will fix

what quickly I broke.

I definitely will fight it

retreat refusal I stroke.

Give me some time

till I fix the fault in me.

For this time I claim

fault that you made me see.

I am still learning but have come a long way

St. Paul wrote about the tongue being the most unruly member of our bodies and you have shown in your evocative poem how a few hasty words can ruin a good relationship. If only we could control our tongues!

Yes, indeed there is

Outstanding poem. As an individualist I hope this is play on opposites. Thank you

I take blame for one part, I know what the other part is and that is for him to figure out:) Thank you for commenting. I appreciate your taking a moment to read it.

It hurts me so to watch someone to take full blame for something. I don't know the other side of the story, but I know there are two sides...always! What a great emotional poem! Voted up and shared!!!
