There is no cure for the Wicked

There is no cure for the Wicked

A Poem by god is not great, I am

Ruined,
but not entirely.
Despite your best efforts,
Traces of my former self still remain,
though very badly mutilated.
I am no longer bitter,
but I am sad.
Not for me, but for you.
I was once of the impression that it was
not possible to live without a heart,
But you falsify this theory entirely. 
You are plagued with heartlessness,
uncaring, unfeeling, and unkind.
A shell of a man, hollowed inside.
I must ask that you please keep your distance,
come too close and you might infect us all.
From what I hear, it's quite catching.
How desperately lonely it must be.

Very good... I can feel your emotion and struggle to be yourself in a world that's trying its hardest to tear you down. I liked your word choice as well.. the only thing I would change is "sad," because with all of the other creative adjectives.. it seems a bit out of place. Maybe try somber or downtrodden or melancholy. The last four lines are my favorite. I'm not sure why... they're beautifully composed, though. Good write!

or rather...
Though badly mutilated,
traces of my former sell still remain,
despite your best efforts.

Mmm... I empathize with the sentiment, and it is so poignantly told. That guy and my ex-girlfriend deserve each other entirely. Cheers.

I like the imagery of 'a shell of a man'. Some people are like poison, they infect your thoughts.. I certainly know a few.
