Once Too Often

A Garret Poet

Once Too Often
Form: Ballad

He saw it, as he said a name
A familiar look of hate
Yet her lips spoke declaring love
And his senses dared to tempt fate

He saw the green in her brown eyes
When old memories crossed his mind
And in that gaze, he felt the cold
But still his heart chose to be blind

He took rages from her acid tongue
Forgiving the pain once too much
Saying sorry for love long past
Each time met an abusive touch

Her jealousy marking his skin
His heart shattered, she took his will
Demanding he forget his soul
And so it went on to until

That last day and he saw the end
He felt her hate and heard her shout
In her cold words that said goodbye
His death, now the only way out
