Have you ever listened to the silence
of your thoughts that seem to reverberate
eerily into the darkness that touches
the innermost chambers of your trembling heart?

Do you fear the truth hidden within
the mist that forms behind your eyes
as you stare longingly into the stars
where you sent your whispered prayers?

Do you feel the thunderous sound
of your raging, beating heart
as it attempts to break free
from its rigid prison?

Would you even pick up the pieces
of the remains of your former self
shattered by promises broken
as it litter the ground?

Would you even breathe love
when the scars you bear reflect
the rugged paths you’ve taken
just to find the warmth you crave?

Do you even dare to live
knowing that pain will come
enveloping you in its familiar embrace
seeping into your tattered soul?

Carving Lies

I will carve the lies your lips have uttered
on your pale skin for you to remember them by.
That all the words you’ve spun with those beguiling
eyes,
have hurt me deep within this fragile flesh of mine.
But I will not be so cruel as to keep the pain to
myself,
I will teach you the burning sensation of shame and
humiliation.
I will show you how easily your words can cut to the
quick.
I will make you understand how lies can cause
someone to die from within.
And when all of these you’ve learned by heart,
I will let you go and live the scars you’ve left me with.
