Falling To Darkness

Falling To Darkness

A Poem by ken burke

My heart beats faster and faster as time goes by

why did you have to tell me that dreadful lie

we had perfection and the greatest love of all

why couldn’t I miss that devastating call

you told me you loved me and you broke my heart

now im sitting in my own prison slowly falling apart

I gave you everything and treated you like a queen

but the pain, the heart break is something I couldn’t have foreseen

I gave you my heart and told you I love you

you looked in my eyes and told me you loved me too

but it was a lie it was always a lie and you lost all my trust

cheating on me, hurting me that was the final knife thrust.

you tore my heart out and let my blood run cold,

now I am a empty shell that no one can console

now I lay on this cold floor,in this dark hole,

you didn’t just take my heart, my love and my world

                    .…..you are the one who killed my soul,

soooooo sad but an amazing write. soooooo true, sometimes we miss the details on the other side of the mask the people we think we know wear and we think to ouselves "I should've saw this comming". Lovely write even though its so filled with anguish

Love is the prison from which we can never escape and yet we willingly close and lock the door. Love the depth of emotion and the bittersweet sadness of this piece. Beautiful, keep em' coming

The total pain of masked inverence, backed by the slight of hand and titled looming of the reader, well done, good read.

Nice write....
hurts, me while reading,
it's pure in it's way,
It's maybe just how you've been through, and experianced this.
To bring these words out, is very good, and touching.
