“Embalmed” 12/24/18 “Pain has turned to hurt, and turns another page, All that’s left inside, this growing, vengeful rage. For what you do not see, I will not give away, I cast you now aside, so you cannot betray. I trusted you before, and now I’m much more wise, No more can you deceive, immune now, to all your lies. All I gave was love, for you to cast away, Black of night consumed, to yield to dark of day. A story never read, a love that remained untold, I die each day once more, this corpse that you turned cold.” EBP
