Word of the Day Challenge #41-Untitled Poem

I stood before you
heart in my hand
asking for intimacy.
I stood before you
tears on my cheeks
needing to be held.
I stood before you
head bowed
unable to look into your eyes
dreading to ask for more.
I stood before you 
and you threw me down.
I wanted to be held
to be caressed
to feel your breath on my neck.
I wanted your hands
to roam my body with tenderness.
I needed your strength
to hold the demons at bay.
I wanted you
all you did was take.
You said that you loved me.
You said that you understood.
You said that you would always be there.
My knight in shining armour does not exist
rowdy demons I must slay alone…..
as they pierce
as they scream
as they gouge deep within.
I needed to be held 
while my heart bled.
I needed you to hear 
my tortured fears.
I needed for you 
to be there for me
instead 
you walked away.
