I never meant to give you everything

I never meant to give you everything.
I did not mean for you to take it all so I had nothing left
For them, for the world.
And worse, I had nothing left for myself.
I did not mean to be used up for your entertainment.
I was supposed to keep some back, so I could give and give and give;
So I could give gifts of substance,
Not to be used up as your meaningless play-thing.
But your darkness grabbed me
And I knew no other way than to allow you to take all of me.
All of my grace and beauty and light,
Sucked into your black hole of depravity.
And I gave it to you so willingly.
You did not have to fight.
I was yours.
I was all yours.
I gave you everything.
I never meant to give you everything.
