Ethan Polmanter


Self Destructive Criticism


I once knew a girl
frightened of her perfection
she gave life a whirl

An found not many have a sense of discretion
Nor do they honor
But she was in desperate need to give her life direction

She cut, an starved
For the release she craved
An body she longed for

she suffered from love withdrawls an a young man who strived to ease them
To whom she was his world

But she was blinded by hatred and a false sense of rejection
She could not understand an she had a tense complextion
No matter how perfect life was she always found something needed correction

She stumbled an fell through life
Tumbled an an wound up in hell for a life
An her life crumbled before her eyes an she thought it was her imperfection to be blamed

But in all reallity.. Her perfection an him in her eyes
Killed the world she dreamed of
Fear blew space in every aspect of her life
An her idea of love... She lost her way in her thoughts

I loved her so dear
Tried to ease her fear
But now... Two times one tear
One of each eye...

An now my sweet love..
Goodbye

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
