No Heaven without Hell

It was beautiful when it lasted.

The memories were like gold.

But now those times have past,

The memories begin to unfold.

Now I watch from the sidelines.

There is nothing I can do.

My only source of comfort,

No longer comes from you.

It shines, it gleams

Like something naïve and young.

It's sharp, it's cool

Like something strong and calm.

With one slice it's no longer innocent,

The evidence is trickling down.

The gush of rubies leave a trail,

Of anger, love and betrayal.

The light is blinding white and hot.

The warmth is like fire against my skin

I don't have long to wait at all,

As darkness seeps in without a sound.
