Stolen (Lost poem retrieved)


You took all the words from my lips
And left me with nothing to say
Then stole the bright sun from my sight
Thus chasing the daylight away

You captured the stars from my eyes
And now I'm unable to see
Then tore out my frail tender heart
So that I could no longer be

You seized all the thoughts from my mind
And now I can no more believe
Destroying the light in my soul -
O how you did my heart deceive

You then razed the smile from my face
Extinguished the love that I bore
Then stole every vestige of hope
So leaving me empty once more

You cut into each of my dreams
And now I am bleeding inside
Lay hold upon all of my life -
And you didn't care when I died

    So cruel a poem. Who could do this. Fortunately it is just a poem. Or is it? (Report) Reply
