Love Poem - Feeling Unbearable Pain when Someone Leaves
Forging rivers fiery and cold
Through a long deserted soul.
A monster mind
Gleefully smashes aside
An eternity of mist-encased love
Craving the ecstasy found only
In echoing wells of self inflicted despair.
In a flurry of gleaming perverted pride
Ego rides high on the corroded shoulders of a neon god.
Pain and passion entwined in agony
Dance endlessly to the tune of a counterfeit promise
Mocking the faithful pledge of fidelity unto demise.
The colourful, carefree ribbons of truth and trust
Disintegrate in billowing clouds of fragrant poison
Choking the light and denying a homeward glance.
Pungent tears honey-sweetened by all-consuming grief
Stream through the shattered dreams cluttering the soil
From which a united identity once sprang
Ah, but you, you unmindful one
You understand but feign weighty demands
And instead embezzle enchanting delights
From a sorceress of Delphi magnitude.
She is charmed to win your tainted allegiance
Before dispatching you to a teeming foyer
Of similarly encouraged gigolos.
Misery puffed with the power of offended purity
Awakens to the clarion call of vengeance’s appeal
It bonds with disenchanted triumph
And the glories of prior place.
Finding solace in the plunder of the victor’s spoils
