The Swindling Stair

Time is forever fleeing
As the beat of a heart conceding
From the betrayals it keeps receiving
Constant abuse leaves it bleeding
As is the darkness it keeps feeding
And angst and misery lie there breeding
A devouring plague it can’t contain
Yet another soul lost in pain
One whom fell in love but fell in vain
Lost in a world he can’t sustain
Where love is murder and hate is plain
Where sunshine dies in place of rain.

    this is so beautiful. Sad, yes. but so honest, so true, so very relatable. & i love ur poetic style in general. but this one is probably my favorite piece ever of yours. lol, maybe it’s just how much i can relate right now. but truly, this simply bleeds passion and the reader can feel the emotion you portrayed so well. that sort of giving up. i love this.

    Provoking the deep, still waters, stirring me away from the dangers of contentment….there is a time and place for all things, though, and this was something that resonated with me today, something I enjoyed receiving…..thank you, loved it….
