Sanctuary of Torture

You think I don't see you for what you are. You are not flesh and blood, Not a pretty face to provide a light in the dark; Nor are you death incarnate Or the greatest evil in the world: You're nothing so spectacular. You are simply horrid, A walking weave of deception, And when you... Continue Reading →

Death’s Allure

I'm sick of hearing how I'm a great person, How generous and supportive I am. It's not that I don’t appreciate a compliment, But it's patronizing when I still feel so alone; Because my friends are too busy for me And talking to any of them now is akin to screaming into a void. My... Continue Reading →

Empty Rooms, Dark Rooms

Reconciling life in your absence Has proven an impossible task; There is no light left to see with, No fire to provide warmth. This room empty, the road ahead barren; Desolation awaits, and not even a mote of hope, Because you left this house with him, And I don't know how to settle for less... Continue Reading →

Sometimes... Continue Reading →

I'm sick of settling for half your heart And confessing every detail of my love for you When all I get in return are platitudes--- Trite rhetoric that you've uttered to who knows how many others? I'm not your emotional support bank For you to withdraw from when you're at your worst, While I receive... Continue Reading →

Death by Deprivation

This is how you killed me: You gave me something wonderful--- A blessing beyond anything I could have conceived: God's light corporeal, And a love crystalline and empyreal, The very thing that was always missing in my life, Though I had never realized it; The element that provided life substance And rescued me from the...

Trapped

The lights snuff out when you draw near, Your very presence enough to smother. I thought you were supposed to bear the torch, Be my comfort through the fiercest storms; But you're no knight or savior, No vanguard to shield me from harm. The promises you whispered into my ear Or shouted with the world... Continue Reading →
