When lies destroy you


Actually I wrote this using magnetic poetry- it was pretty cool ^.^ Got it for me b-day. But yeah, I just kept choosing words and it seemed to flow... not to mention matched what I'm feeling

Music pounds with deathly sweet passion

Beating visions of rusting blood and delicate roses

Deep within my frantic heart.

Sweating with delirious memories and bitter heartache

I fall to my knees like my legs have been crushed

And scream to the heavens to stop the heartbeat

Of both the song and my chest.

Panting, I cry out into the silence

Whispering my sorrow

And gasping for peace.

All I can think is that I have failed.

My blood has been poisoned

By my own treason,

And the cure has yet to be found.

And so I will die

To the beat of death;

The gorgeous pounding beat.
