All I Wish To Leave Behind

I remember Styx at Rainbow Park
And down by the river;
Long afternoons of Asia,
Peter Gabriel and INXS in autumn.

You impressed me with your wit
And overwhelmed me with your passion;
Wooed me with your authority.
I felt bent
As if I could only grow towards you.

I gave you songs and you
Gave me noise. Good music
For a bad seed
Funny how
I lived to please you while you
Only lived to break me down.

How dare you love me
Then destroy me;
To show me your wealth
And leave me poor.

I cross the river many times
But can not bridge the gap
Between the starry-eyed girl
I used to be and
The angry creature you
Left behind.
