Destroyed

Published by at 10:42 am under Dark Love Poems

With one last note, my voice recedes
One gasped lyric as my heart bleeds
One escaped tear, one mortal sin
Curse the God I once believed in

I bow my head, but not in prayer
Why pray to Him if He’s not there?
Why say the words, if all in vain?
Why have the faith through all the pain?

My shaking hands tangle in my hair
I tug it loose, but I don’t care
Blood mixed with tears, I sob aloud
My body hunched, there on the ground

And as I cry, I think of you
Of all the things we’ll never do
I think of love, of life, of joy
Of all the things that you’ve destroyed

And with that thought, decisions made
My sins laid out and crimes repaid
One stammered breath, my tears encased
My ugly locks and frown replaced

They forget me, and as I’d been
With bloodshot eyes and pasty skin
There in the earth, down six feet deep
I hope my soul is mine to keep
