Lost Hope for a Broken Soul

When I think about things that are gone and passed
I mourn for the things that did not last
I feel the hurt and tears that fell
I cannot get free, trapped in this Hell
The fires of memories lick at my flesh
Burning up tears that I thought would always last
Coal black eyes, you can see my soul
I gave up everything, everything for a mole
But such rich eyes…
They beckoned me in, promising me everything
Using all of my sin
My heart still aches
My soul still bleeds
To hear that voice
So honey sweet
And yet I let you hold the knife
Feel you twist it in my back, and I never seem to fight
The blood starts to rip, taking with it some hope
That one day I will stop this nonsense
And take that one last fatal blow
But no, not to him
I want him to stay in perfection, I never can harm him
The knife is for me, to mortify my own flesh
Let the blood pour, like my tears once did
Maybe then he will understand
I regret the mistakes made
But no matter what, I would always belong to him

    Wow!!! I can honestly say you are one of the best poets I have ever had the pleasure of reading from your very passionate straight from the heart works. I can almost feel your pain. I hope your heart can heal and know this you have a talent that is above many others. Do not waste your life mourning the loss of your love, it seems to me that he is the one who is losing out. There is someone out there who deserves your love and who will return it with as much passion as you deserve. He is not worthy.
