Ishin denshin (以心伝心)

A Poem by shadowtigers

Some words are best left unspoken.


Tonight I am hating myself
As much as I hate you
I see myself becoming
Just a reflection
Drowning in the bottom
Of the looking glass
You pour me another drink
After I told you I refuse
The temptation burning
Deep inside
To be possessed
By the demons
For just another night
You give me that look
I can see it in your eyes
Your soul always whispers
To me so silently
"You will do it,
if you love me"
"you will do it,
if you want me to care"
And when I sacrifice that part of me
When I abandon
All reason for madness
When I kill all of my beliefs
When I give to you
Everything you want
You only seem to disappear

This really struck a chord. I wish I could offer you more but the emotions and words used here were very well done. It's such a level of understanding mingled with sorrow and tinged with a little spark of hope. Beautiful as always
