"Death Of Hearts"


I ripped my eyes from your face,

Tears bleeding through.

I almost collapsed to the floor.

My hands,

Dripping your life away.

Cries escaped my lips,

Deaf to my own ears.

Crimson glistened dully,

Dispersing around you.

I touched your trembling cheek,

Your body frozen over.

A tear clawed your eye,

The tint of red frightening.

Agonizing seconds passed,

Silence shattering endlessly.

I refused to move myself,

Your essence slowly deteriorating.

Vision painfully blurred,

Innocence torn away.

And my heart,

Wretched in two.
