A poem about someone close to me. Someone who torments himself for a dark force who can no longer do so, someone whose heart I want to see heal.
Rose thorn claws pry at the shell
Around the dark shard of her heart
Please remember what you were.
Don't take the bait, the curse, the lure.
Love corrupted, madness planted
A grasping wraith inside your mind.
When you were young and so unsure
Trusting as we all once were
The hate will fight to stay alive
Understanding singes vice.
Through all the pain you had endured
Your mind is frayed, but your heart is pure.
I know the truth, the fog has cleared
No more broken promises
She can't hurt you anymore
Defy her now, and take the cure
