Highway to HellA Poem by Reaper
Chained to this sinking stone
My feet sink into this unforgiving ground
The ground of earth so unstable
I call out for help but I know I’m alone
The fire under the ground kisses my heels
Ready to rise and bite my whole defenseless body
Nowhere to go, no one to save me
Moment by moment, the world’s pressure crushes whats left of me.
How could you do that to me?
Thrust the knife of trust and love into unarmored back
Then you twist with all your might
You just stood there, smiling at my bittersweet demise
I begged for life but you crushed my now silent voice
I was left there soulless and blooded, a shell of a man I once was
My eyes empty, my body burned, my hope destroyed.
All reaped by the world.
I sat there scattered. Remaining pieces falling apart fast
Chunks of my existence now wiped from this earth
The walls rose to defend what was left
A blacken heart now stored in an old rusty safe
My mind closed, only shown when it bleed then spilled on paper
My muses’ dead and gone, fading fast from my soaked up brain
A mask arose to hide the real me
A person so broken, he would never be seen again
Only a single flame remained
It danced alone in the dark, looking for something to spark
A single paper drifted in the wind
It hit the flame and sparked a life
No direction, no endless desire
Just a spark, catching fire
Nothing promised, nothing given
But a light burst onto the scene
Warmth returned, the walls
rattled at the sight of maybe opening up
The blacken heart pulsed with a sense of love
A love not defined by the normal
Unconformed to what the world wanted
Or even to what I wanted
I don’t want to fall in love
Love fades, dies, crashing to the floor
But I do know what I want
That spark, that hope, that insanity brewing inside
I want you.
But then again, why should I hope for you?
My warrior inside is unchained but dead
When I told you I loved you, I meant it
But when I say those words, I understand the curse I set in motion
It’s only a matter of time till you run
Love is death for me
So I shall stay I’m the shadows
Lurking. Hoping and praying you never love me back
