Marked for Life

Tears streaming down my cheeks,

lying in bed facing the wall,

a heartbroken man

who had never felt so small.

You laughed as you told me

we were finished,

speechless I just watched

as my love was relinquished.

All this time you were playing

me for a fool

even as I treated you

like a precious jewel.

Whatever you wished for

I tried to make it come true

even down to getting your name

on a stupid tattoo.

Now I am marked for life

both inside and out

after you delivered

this unexpected knockout.
