You Were A Mistake

You Were A Mistake

A Poem by Raven Starhawk

Hurting is the only thing he knows

His lips can speak of nothing else

Red blades of grass bend in the wind

That echoes the cries of the slain

He once possessed a great gift

Now it lay wasted

The past is a place he lives in

Revenge is a love he seeks

Through the eons his heart has grown black

Never again will my heart be his to own
