Dead Man's theories (heart MIA)

Updated on July 25, 2009

Oh lord the misery has gotten through my city gates once again

And snow surrounds my heart which has gone astray after the pain

Blood freezes in my veins, lips cold as ice and heart of stone

Oh my fragile heart still missing in action, leaving me lonely to moan

It’s Christmas again, this time of the year when I’m all on my own

The sky scatters red flakes of my bloody broken skin as people sing

The ghosts of my past haunt me down the painstaking memories sting

The unforgettable stigma of my past tortures me mercilessly

Though I plead forgiveness from the seven heavens endlessly

The night, a beast dressed in black accompanied by ominous mist

This life, a twist of fate has bound me with hate all through the wrist

The incubus uses my heart as a puzzle, a chess pawn

A sacrificial, or a toy, and discards my soul at dawn

The carols echo throughout the night suffocating my cries

Adding knots to my life string, choking me as it ties

“A heart to keep you warm” the oracle said as she handed it in

Yet it lays on the crimson ice bed, broken, MIA ready to give in

I’ve lost hope of conquering the loneliness and tasting the true meaning of life

And the night rider who brought the pain on Christmas hands me the knife

Not having someone’s around my cold body on Christmas is traumatizing

Yet no matter how often sorrow get under my skin it remains agonizing

Alas! The jewelry box in my chest was lost during the last stand

And I’ve lost the battle crashed with no one to give me a hand

The trees sparkle with lights celebrating, as my own turn to black

Ashes to ashes dust to dust, and to earth we’ll all be sent back

But my corpse remains, empty, lifeless, as a heart I lack

      Kinda glad I read this in August rather than near Christmas (no wonder so many suicides occur around the holidays). How can words exemplifying loneliness connect so powerfully? I'm awed. Lovely. MM

      This poem is overcast with dark clouds looming. I wish I could chase them away for you with some sunshine and give you a new heart. Nicely written though. When you get your story done I will read it all at once.
