Random Poem:

Poison/No More

All these questions
in my head,
resounding, pounding,
my soul is dead.
I seek the answers
that don't exsist,
to find the lies
that brought me bliss.
A sphere of hatred,
with a core of love.
Poison delivered
with a silken glove.
Take my life
and leave me be.
Look inside your soul
and see...
if I cannot make you happy,
then neither will anyone else,
for that in me which brought you grief
is only in yourself.
Tears of blood are streaming,
pouring down my face.
Trying, in vain, to wash away
the pain that took your place.
My eyes can see no color.
No red, or blue, or green.
Because a world with shades of grey
is all that\'s to be seen.
My fingertips feel nothing now,
but the memory of your face.
I long to touch you once again...
I guess that won\'t be the case.
The only thing my ears can hear
are echos of the past.
Words of love and how you promised
you would make it last.
I wish that I could make you feel
what you have done to me.
Take a dagger to your heart
and tear your soul in three.
But it comes to this immortal truth,
a verdict from above-
I am cursed and blessed it seems
for you will always be my love.
