No Hero To My Heart

He opened the door
I did th sin
Against all wills
I let him in 
                            Chaining a heart
                            Choking the pulse
                            Robbing a life
                            3 crimes unfalse
                                                       Me,right here
                                                       Just the one to blame
                                                       "Dont hate the player
                                                        Hate the game"
                                                                                      He said he's changed
                                                                                      Said:"Never again"
                                                                                      Said i was important
                                                                                      Love for who i am
But my crimes Was nothing but letting my only pump in rape I just parked my life At the 
sidewalk today.

    love the way you presented this poem like a walking stairs---this is deep----"dont hate the player,hate the game",love for who i am",powerful write--the will of a person not to commit crime and sin,then he sins again,though he commits the crime,there s still some light in this person,lets give him a chance love him for who he is...then maybe he change----------awesome-----------charma

    These are some powerful verses, and the form is interesting, which makes me think of someone who continues to fall of the wrongs they have done. Great work!

    Thanks for reading my poem "Insecurity". I'm glad it made sense to you. Now, as for this poem! I love the way it's shaped in those chunks, it makes it read like the narrator is almost choking on words and each chunk is separated by a heartbroken pause. The narritive itself reminds me of something which happened to me once. It wasn't anything at all shocking or scarring, but a Bell Jar esque Buddy Willard moment. If you get that reference. My poem reached you and yours reached me, thank you. :D
