IF MY FACE WAS A MIRROR

If my face was a mirror,
Your love has broken the glass,
Shattered not seeing clearer,
Puzzles present to past.

If your womb was of water,
Indeed 'twas I that drowned,
No sculptor nor a potter,
Could craft the curse you've crowned.

Some say your love is fire,
And I the weakest wood,
What made you burn desire?
To beguile in my blood.

Heavy you are of stone,
Atop a fragile feather,
My heart you crushed to own,
With lies to love forever.

Before I was a bridge,
Until your beauty blew,
My life over the edge,
And then I fell for you.

Emotions in me entered,
As intercourse was nice,
Yet serpents in you centered,
A heart colder than ice!

My trials and tribulations,
With you tell like a tale,
As sour and rich relations,
Of Angels loving hell.

If my face was a mirror,
Your love has broken the glass,
Shattered not seeing clearer,
Puzzles present to past.

    Wow, this must come from deep inside. I feel the pain and anger you express so well. I hope the writing brings healing Johnny. This has a 7 in my book!

    I think you wrote this from what recently happened to you? I really liked the way you described your face as a mirror shattered by her love. Some really great descriptive lines in this poem. Hope to see you on here longer this time!! andrea
