You Must Have Wanted This
Author: Holly


It’s amazing how,
Much you can break a person.
Firing words like poison darts,
You make it an art.

Just don’t be surprised when,
You’re forced to reap what you sew.
The words will sting you like salt on a wound,
As I say “I told you so”.

You don’t understand the price,
No one ever does.
The consequences are,
My dear,
Or is it just a bit of fun?

Now it’s too late my take it all back,
You’ve made her coffin,
Now she must lie in it.
And maybe you’ll wish you’d been a bit,
Nicer to her.

Look into my eyes as I ask you:
Is this what you really want?
It doesn’t take much to destroy a person,
Was that your plan all along?

Learn the meaning of “responsibility”.
But it’s all too late now.
One suicide note,
One slit to the throat.
You must have wanted this.

------- Author's Notes -------

I hope this one isn't too confusing.

I prefer "You've made her coffin, now she must lie in it". And it's true, people don't understand what they do to others until it's too late..
