Dedicated to Steph. I love you, girlie.

She is Beauty
Twinkling eyes illuminated by the moonlight
Her touch is my touch, her sight I see
 
Our hearts beat in a synchronized rhythm
I see him mistreating her, mistreating me
And I want to cry out-
I want to end this blasphemy
the inferno in my heart silences me
And though tears fill my eyes
Through weakness, I lose my pride
As she loses her innocence
 
Trading love for lust, losing her time
So precious is this demon
So precious is this sin
A new kind of addiction, a new kind of affliction
To ease the scars in her heart,
only to make them surface again
My heart stops beating
 
I try to tell her
I try to make her see reason
but she won't
She has made her descision
My heart of lead, my heart of stone
pounding once more
Her life spirals away from her fragile fingertips
 
The grass is always greener on the other side
What a lie

Grr. I just wrote a poem called Forced Insouciance, now I'll have to change the name. Way to go! =^.^= But in all serious your poem deserves it more. I love the power and flow, it reads easily but leaves me thinking. Thanks for sharing. Oh, and chapter two is up on Blood Symphony if you'd care to give it a read.

Wow, you did? :O
Thank you. It's great that we're both getting back into the poetry! I'll take a look.
