All I Can Do


I wrote these words
only for you,
so do with them,
as you wish.

Take them for the literal
or the figurative
it doesn’t matter to me
as long as you promise
to read them
and know
they were written
only for you.

Crumple them up,
throw them out,
and burn them in flames
when you’re finished.
As long as they were read
and not wasted;
I know
I’ve done
all that I can do

  1. That is a really powerful poem. It sounds like something I would have written a million years ago when the first guy I went out with smashed my heart to pieces.
