Watching You


Run
Running, running
I'm running away, running away from this day
this horrific day
I tried to fight, fight for the greatest thing in my life
but it was beyond my pride to hold once more
something more precious than a diamond
But it was beyond my pride to hold once more
the star I once called mine
Why must I be inflicted with this cursed skin
for this cursed skin
is the unjustifiable reason why authority figures
decided to bestow bruises and beatings upon her skin
for this cursed skin is the unholy reason
why I sit here
twixt uncontrollable rage and grieving saddening silence
cause I can't bear to witness the transfer
of my love slip into the darkness of the one I despise
Is the joke upon me
I predicted her leaving
and though I dreaded the ending, it came true
Isn't right for me to press delete quickly
so the pain doesn't rise in my throat
and sink me in a dark abyss I wouldn't be able to climb up from
Isn't it right for me to press delete quickly
so the pain doesn't rise in my throat
to break my trachea
cause my whole life to flash before my eyes
and witness one more time
for me to cry...

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
