Bloody Broken Heart

Bloody Broken Heart

A Poem by Faith

Welcome home.
You are here to stay. 
But me, I am only passing through. 
You won't remember my name...But I will remember yours. 

We kissed in the pale moonlight 
And held hands as we walked through the cemetery. 
You were happy, high on life. 
I was indifferent and cold. 

Somewhere, in the atmosphere 
A crow called your name
You said you had to go
I wasn't surprised

Still, something kept us there
Suspended between life and death
Something between a memory and a dream
But consciousness was dim

You kissed my lips and said not to worry
You said we would meet again
I knew it was a lie
But it was comforting

We parted ways, 
You into the fog and I rejoined the shadows
Consumed by cold and desire
Your warmth was gone 

I mourned, but did not wait
I wept, but felt no relief
The pain, the nausea, all consumed me like a disease

And somewhere, in this distant spiral of the galaxy, 
You smiled at me, 
The way you smiled at a thousand before me 
The way you will smile at a thousand after

And I, soulless and enamored, 
Reached inside my chest and ripped out my heart.

A powerful piece of ink. There are times when I can relate to these words. I think you've given some wonderful images to the emotional feelings. Yet, in the end I'm forced to remember, that we do what we can and if that isn't enough, then that path wasn't supposed to be.

Great Ink!

I am the one that no one sees… Sitting at the corner table of the café. I find safety in shadows, in hiding from the world. Here… In the dark… No one can hurt me. Sometimes.. more..
