Eroded “Love”

Ignorance to his selfishness threw her away

Breaking a code that settled in for a decade

Grasping for a line, a thirst excused from her denial

Fled by foot away from the fluorescent light

A bang of an aluminum door was the last thing heard from a life before

Passion and trouble laid in the wake

…of sin that started way too late

 

Her presence embodied a likeness of a Goddess

Cult status of willing followers

All making her pretty like undying flowers

Wilting within

Pressing her falling heart between two lungs

Breathing in self-love and hate

A novel of life …encased with recycled air

Struggling to flow life back to reality
