A Poem by Krista Gallant

You, my silent sin and forceful obsession

Flushed with crazy desire, drawing me in

My soul weary and torn from constant rejection

Psyche penetratingly cries, feelings of chagrin


Pushed tenuously from your lonesome heart

Constantly searching for signs of utter redemption

Causing confusion with all solutions thwart

Into the darkness of despair and destruction


Ghosts secretly plaguing your aghast past

Wanting absolute salvation but all for naught

Becoming sullen, resenting my efforts last

My remanence only an exhausted afterthought


Convincing myself my feelings were returned

Absolutely robbing the heart, body and mind

Seduced emotions by your selfish needs earned

Listless love rejected repeatedly, truly and malign


Betrayal of companionship, amity and devotion

Scarred body reliving emotional death once more

Renouncing my faith in mortal love and affection

Tears from my eyes a never-ending downpour
