A Poem by fallendemonofmercy

what happens when you get in too deep and you can't take it



I cry for you
Fight for you
Love to hate you
Hate that I love you
You’re my drug
An ongoing fixation
Sometimes a tyrannical thug
I’m often left in desperation
I can’t help it
It’s true
So cut the s**t
I want more of you  
But you deny me
Degrade me
Capture me
And won’t set me free
Now I see
That you were a mistake
And the way out I seek
I must take
I feel the blade
Icy cold serrated edge at my throat
My pulse grows strong, fails to fade
I gasp at the chill, try not to choke
A crash from behind
Sends my mind reeling
I turn, can’t believe my eyes
You are there, running…trying to stop me
The tip grazes
Bites my neck
Blood gushes
My match is met
My final hours
Have come to an end
You catch me in your arms
Never defeated, ever spent
I look into your eyes
The anguish surprises me  
You begin to cry, hug me tight
And set me free
I give you a smile
And close my eyes
And fly away…
At last

WOW! There isn't anything else I can say....I'm addicted to cutting(I'm working on that) and this just brought out sooo much of my past.....I really enjoyed this piece, there is soooo much raw emotion in this. There's also excellent imagery. I loved this piece. I'm going to add it to my favorites in my library, that's how much I love it.

Every truly great accomplishment is at first impossible. Hope for the hopeless. Inspiration = Music = Love = Hope = Belive more..
