Rubber Band

Love is like a rubber band held with both ends by two
When one leaves it hurt

---To I am hurt by love…where I been mistreated…
Not once but twice…throw me in a dungeon where I burn to my death
Buried in a quicksand…my whole body compress…

-------click, crack the sound of crushed bones….

-------squirt, splash the sound of blood splattered…


----crushed ribs…punctured my every organ…

Buried lifelessly in such gruesome death
By the hand of a man she once called her lover…


-----------a rubber band snap when one leaves--------

Creepy is right, so creepy I'll be looking forward to Chanroth's next article with the hope that it is not this scary.

I sure hope she's 'ok'.

Very insightful piece. Love could be a scary thing, it could be painful and overwhelming and on the other hand beautiful and exciting.

Keep well.

You've painted a picture that definitely shows the pain and desolation you can feel when a relationship goes bad, you've left nothing to the imagination...the pain is there! I voted this up and awesome.
