I unfairly gave you,
Many wonders this world doesn't own
Many pipe dreams I painted for you
The rainbow butterfly of my love
Gentle treasures buried in my very soul
The phial of my affection...

...That you drank in one go
Drying me to my last heartbeat.
You gave me ashes back
Sealed in a mocking funeral urn.
Even bullets couldn't wound me 
As much as your sadistic smile.

Despite leaving me all alone, again
I still forgive you. I still believe in you.

On the gloomy road
And I walk, and I cry, and I feel
A chill of loneliness.
I gave you so much, and you gave me nothing back. 
I foolishly think you might give me something, one day. 

Why do I keep trusting you? Because I'm alone, and you're my only "friend".

Ah i know the pain of heartbreak as well and i too once gave my everything to a man and he gave me nothing in return. Fools in love and life eh? But i learned from my mistakes thankfully and i am sorry about your pain. I hope you know you are not alone the many readers here on DA love your work and i am sure you have many other friends who consider you their "everything" :) "to the world you may be one person but to the one person you may be the world" never forget that :) :hug: Beautiful poem once again. :heart:

Yeah I'm not alone. :D I've got my DA and IRL friends, this mess only happened a few times in the past, now I know what makes a good friend and I consider myself lucky I met the right person. :)
Thank you my friend, I'll always be there for you. :heart:

Not to boast but I think so too. :meow:
Beautifully written, very melancholy and bittersweet, with a hard edge in places. It rings very true - I hope you meet people more deserving of your friendship.

It rings some bells to several people unfortunately. 
Thank you, I've already found these friends. :)
Good, I'm glad to hear it :-)

I find myself in similar circumstances. Although the situation is often unclear to me... I try to maintain faith. But for someone who grew up depending only on ruthless calculus and facts, it is very difficult to retain the kind of strength that you speak of in the second last paragraph.

I'm sorry you faced such a situation.  It is difficult indeed, however it's ofter not worth it.
