Another day has passed and I’m still not here,
You’ve taken it all, but left the fear.
Infected soul and murdered heart,
Destroyed a life, torn worlds apart.
I do not live, now all is grey,
These fragile bones, they do decay.
Tattered dreams that burn my eyes,
Nothing left but fractured lies.
A cut so deep that bleeds away,
Surprised I lasted another day.
I took it in, all that you could give,
Despite the hell, I tried to live.
You played it well, with all that seemed,
To tell untruth and curse what I dreamed.
You took my hope and burned it whole,
Left me with a blackened hole.
No alternative than the desire to die,
But I didn’t fade, I wonder why?
You cursed and played my tortured mind,
Subjected me to abuse unkind.
Battered me with all your might,
I didn’t have the will to fight.
You took a chance, it was your best,
To slash me hard across my chest.
As I fell and began to cry,
You couldn’t care if I should die.
With pain and blood, I fell to the floor,
Slowly, did your emotions pour.
You’d thought it through and you were thrilled,
Observing life potentially killed.
As I lay still, silently bleeding,
You reconciled a life still needing.
Thankfully I saw another day,
But I didn’t live in the same way.
It’s irrelevant, you killed me and that is real,
This dark love that I didn’t feel!
