Silent Waters

Silent Waters

A Poem by Aries
"

I am only human

"



I have stilled the pulse in my veins
of distant love's growing pains

  For this, I've survived
and now I thrive
on the unquenchable well that should have died

 Yet,
 I've slain God for his deceptive side.

Why then,
nurtured harshly by a sharper prod,
will my soul not hide

... the lust ... ?

 This rust on the chains of my conscience
and the blood I've cast
are like lies I've told in my haunting past
and the certainty of the decay to come
to parting souls
that to sin succumb

Wow... This one's so powerful, and it flows so well. God, sometimes I'm so jealous of your writing, babe.
