Ain’T Got What It Takes
My love is somewhere yearning for me,
While I’m here pining all alone
She’ll be wondering what must have gotten wrong;
Why am I not always at home?
I just don’t know how to explain
The reason I cause her much pain
But there’s one thing I know
It’s that I do love her so
Though I ain’t got what it takes to
Show her that I do
Many times I’ve failed to take her out for diner
To the places she’d always wanted us to be
Like skiing together in the Alps in winter
Or surf in summer on Hawaiian sea
Could she believe I’m on shaky ground?
For all my treasures can’t be found!
Lord! I wish I could show
That I do love her so
For I ain’t got what it takes to
I’m crazy still for you though I wonder
If you could take me , for a wrench I now stand
Shame and prude on my part keeps us asunder
Though I wish you could but understand
I know you miss me girl so deeply
And I more than miss you too
But destitution drives me dizzy
I may sound silly, yet it’s true
But now I must let you know
That I do love you so
Though I aint got what it takes to
Show you that I do.

This poem describes the start to a relationship ending in horror
All I know is my truth and at 16 I was in a substance induced psychosis...and I got this
Have you ever been so aware of you self that you felt like you've lost your self?
