I sat, still. gut wrenched, holding.
Nib to parchment scraping. cutting.
tracing veins that would no longer quicken.
until I vomited you. out. bleeding the past. the way out through the buried box.
contaminating the air. singing
as a newborn.echoing through the darkness.
afterwards. raw. eyes wide. finally awake.
flooding, senses heightened.
I knew. I was alive.
Abusive words come easy
the hurt they cause it lasts
Wipes out all of yesterday
tears the world apart
Makes me feel as nothing; worthless
to the core
Retreating back in silence
unloved for ever more
‘I wish I’d never ever met you’ the
words of love I hear
spoken as you spit at me to
Wipe away my tears
I was never your enemy
at times your only friend
I’m sorry I’ve ‘Never been there for You’
hurtful to the end..
But you once meant the world to me
today I’m sad that you still do
If you wanted so badly to leave me
I was not stopping you
You have no right, you never did
to scream at me your hate
I loved you for the soul you were
The soul your Hatred ate.
