I Braved Goodbye

Updated on July 10, 2012
Source

I laid your sweater on my bed

bloody, stained a gamy red

the dread was never in my head

the sickness brought by what you said


And when you ran I followed view

denied the things I'd want from you

silenced that which bothered you

including faith down on that pew


I told the words, I told them whole

and laughed at all the time you stole

knowing there'd be no parole

of that which lives inside your soul


Caged, battered, silent, still

and here it is my tattered will

lonely at this window sill

no longer speaks without his pill


Confusion as the last goodbye

and rain came down into my eyes

did you think that I could cry

without my life just driving by


And then returned but you were late

a moment much too close to fate

there once was love where now is hate

and there you lay this drunken state


Whisper softly one last time

and share the pain that's yours and mine

the blood that trickles does define

the end of nothing ours sublime


I hold my breath cannot relax

to guard myself from your attacks

and as I lie here with my ax

Regret is questions left unasked


See me again in twenty years

a clouded memory of fears

magician like you disappear

and leave my blood to dripping here

      A battered person holds a sadness within their heart that silent cries out in pain. Great thoughts on this sentiment.

      You have written a mighty powerful hub that draws you in to your soul. I felt your emotions beneath my skin as goosebumps formed. Voted up and shared!
