Your Demise

Your Demise

A Poem by AveTN
"

We all have our personal inner demons that we must face. We all have that one person from our past who hurt us and scarred us emotionally. Someone that we have to let go of and overcome.

"

 

If my self-torment in a vial could be captured

One sip would be your fated undoing

You would not survive a single swallow

Of  the poison I have drank for so long,

The blood I have so passionately drawn

The grave that has so sweetly called my name

Now it screams for my reluctant surrender

Yet I have resisted its permanent chains,

Forever bending, refusing to break

Now you ask why I am this way

Take a sip, if you dare, I say

The consequence will not break my heart

Now immune to any pain you can cause,

Now numb to the grievances of life

I offer you blame and gratitude

And as you slip away I sigh, say goodbye

                               And I close my eyes to your demise.

Well, I can relate to this all the very much this instant. A lot of underrated powerful lines here. They deal a blow to my stomache just reading it.
"I offer you blame and gratitude"

Gratitude for the good times, or the lesson learned. For breaches of trust, and your feathery touch...

Well written. Cheers !
