Torn

Rent and riven,

Unforgiven

For the past…

Bent and broken,

Words unspoken

Echo coldly…

Cleaved in two

And scathed by you –

Your desperate words…

By God, how they burn!

How my stomach they turn!

How they rip and they rend…

I will not try again

'til my soul you can mend –

If I try, I will fall…

Weary and worn

Tired and torn

And destroyed by your burden…
