Too much love


They said she only has a little time

Before she drifts off to the light

After they said that she'd have a long life

I asked the doctor what was wrong

He said her heart had grown too strong

I asked the doc just what that means 

He said her heart was bigger than it  seemed

As a person made of belief I did not understand where having a big heart could go wrong

All I knew was what I thought i had to do


On Her final days I bashed her with hate

I didn't visit her as much 

When I did I rejected her

I even told her she should cry because she was going to die

I thought this was helping

I was trying to shrink her heart

She didn't know that I was cruel

Because I loved her too much to loose


On her last day could take no more

I yelled in her face on how is was her fault 

Her fault for loving everyone and everything the way she did

Why'd she have to keep loving me even when I threw at her all my grief


The monitor started going in and out 

I realized that there was a war roaring inside of her

She was trying to decide whether to Live or Die

1 hour later...

She died


For five years straight I have a battle with love

I think the day she died was because she felt unloved...

By me

But I think she got to that position in the first place because she loved too much


And even though I still don't know

I will always remember my war with Love five years ago
