Stripped of Life
by Elements Daughter
Age Group: Adult
the dark once again seizes my heart
confusion and doubt tear my trust apart
this fleeting resistance a quick spark
Disappointment, like aim missed its mark
I know my heart will never love the same,
I now see how love to most is just a game
I will never be made to feel stupid or sad again
I will never let a man make me feel ashamed
The ice I feel inside, the fear I hide behind
the deep seated anger that lets me see the lies
its all part of the reason I cannot lead a happy life
so distorted by previous pain all i see is blind
and it saddens me to behold what i have become
I cannot simply move forward because of what others have done.
I am the king of sorrow, an endless kingdom
for those kind of wounds, there are no magic books to read from
and know it is not from pain I suffer, only a deep melancholy
some kind of immovable sadness that has fallen on me
feels like hypothermia, trapped in ice
stripped of love, trust, stripped of life.
