You Murdered My Love

If you are still here,
And I awaken screaming.
I have not experienced a nightmare.
I am just surprised,
I am still alive.
Knowing you are aware,
That my raw and obnoxious antics...
Did not motivate you to split.
Or dismember my valued jewels.
After I dozed off...
Disrespecting and chewing you up,
With insults.
I now apologize even I am sickened by it.

Why do you put up with me?

'I can only collect,
If you die from natural causes.
You are going to pay for my patience!
Trust me.'

And I am thinking it must be love.

'You murdered my love some time ago.'
