In Memory Of You

In Memory Of You

A Poem by Ethale Captor

Emotion is either useless or powerful.

Is a motion
A notion of
One's thoughts for
Trading hearts for
Love or stone
To replace
The face
Of a beating heart's pace
Running to or away
It's all the same
Love is how it feels
To be chained
Remain untouched by
An alternate reality
That we create
So we don't have to
Face our fate
Love is a painful
Beautiful bliss
Death's kiss
Like this
Is how I feel
When I can't feel
Anything anymore
Completely numb
But on Cloud 9
Flying high
In the sky
With a head full of
Twisted fantasies
All designed
To keep my mind
Off of my life's
deepest most painful 
At least just until 
When I feel like dying
Crying and no longer flying
This is how I feel
When I feel
Like I don't have a heart
At all anymore
Can't fall anymore
Can't feel the remorse
Melting to apathy
Happily taking over me
Coming in
Invading again
Ripping my soul
Making me cold
I shiver with a smile
Knowing it'll be a little while
Before the Lonely culls me
Lulls me to sleep every night
I don't know the day when I won't
Wake up alive
Thriving to see
The end of me
In a foggy future
Is a motion
A notion of
Emptiness inside
Just moving through the motions
Emotionless to me
So distance from me
You're so cold to me
You're so cold in my time
We can hold hands, it's fine
I see your eyes
But you can't see in mine
Mine are clear
You can't catch my tear
As it slides from my face
I'm a disgrace to love
The emotion love
I'm sorry, my love
But you never loved me
Still you can't see
The pain in me
That I suffer through
To think of you
You'll never know
When I go
The reason why
I had to die
I died in
Memory Of You
