Your words mean nothing to me anymore.
Just echoes in the halls of my mind.
You are nowhere, and yet…
Where is my footing?
It was dangerous to love you.
You whispered such sweet words.
The other hand,
Your violent words sealed our fate.
The echoes get louder as the days pass.
The syrupy sorrow lingers,
This loneliness grasps tighter
As all you said
Falls to the ground around my feet.
Your love is a kiss of poison,
A frost bite on tender flesh.
Knowing you brought great pain,
And forged great strength.
What a high price I paid.
My mind is filled with agony,
Lamenting my innocence in your hungry presence.
You ravaged my heart,
Hooked me with rusty claws,
And tore into my languid body.
Capturing a butterfly
Is easy when everything is a net.
Forgetting your promise,
To be there for me,
To be by my side.
You couldn’t even stand by your own.
Why should I be mad that you have nothing to give?
My swollen eyes
Hang heavy and low.
The whips of memory assail the mind.
I get up.
I go on.
