Like Snow White
I have unknowingly bitten into the poisonous
My heart beats just to keep me alive. 
I am broken.
I feel nothing. 

My heart is being cloaked against a warming.
My body shivers, shakes. 
My mind ponders, can love still grow?
The wells have dried I can no longer shed tears.

A strangling weed has begun to take control.
Tangling so deep around my heart that loves light is so hard to find. 
A tender feeling brings pain to the center of my being. 

The constant negativity is gnawing on my brain making it become numb. 
My head reels in pain to think a tender thought.
Mindless chatter is all I hear.

I crave darkness.
A sleep, an endless sleep.
Judge me if you must, condemn me not.
For, I am already condemned.
My blissful memories one by one are slowly fading away.
My warm emotions turning into a cold wind freezing my soul.

Will a true loves kiss when touched my lips rejuvenate my soul 
Expel me from the loveless poisons running rampant in my veins.
Uproot the lifeless emotions growing in my heart.
Reheat what passion remains.
Ignite the dying coals. 

Like Snow White 
Can I still arise to begin anew?
A true loves light capturing my soul.
A touch warming me to my core.  
Ending the lonely terror.

The wells have dried I can no longer shed tears.
