A Poetic Love


                                               He exists

                                                  Weathered and worn

                                                  From years

                                                  Of self abuse

                                                  Yet still

                                                  He drinks more

                                                  And continues

                                                  His downward spiral

                                                  Into the depths

                                                  Of hell.

                                                                   She was beautiful

                                                                 In every way

                                                                 But he still

                                                                 Found fault

                                                                 Because control

                                                                 Is the name

                                                                 Of the house

                                                                 Where

                                                                 He wants

                                                                 Her to live

                                                                 As she peers out

                                                                 From

                                                                 Behind the glass.

My paper heart

Was no match for him

Its feather weight

Was too easily drawn in

By the dancing flames

In the fireplace

Of his soul

And was too quickly

Engulfed in his blaze.

                                                He still exists

                                                  Weathered and worn

                                                  From years

                                                  Of breaking hearts

                                                  Yet still

                                                  He breaks more

                                                  And continues

                                                  His downward spiral

                                                  Into the depths

                                                  Of hell.
